Excellent expositions, very organized. The building has an astonishing architecture with a beautiful dome where you can appreciate in the first floor. Some days on weekends they promote a party at night called "Madrugada no Centro" that is awesome!

If you are at the city centre you must not skip Centro Cultural Banco do Brasil, or only CCBB. The building is terrific and the exhibitions are wonderful. They have theatre performances happening from monday to sunday and even a private cinema sections with old movies from all over the world for a very cheap membership. CCBB opens from Tuesday...

The venue has some of the best exhibits in Brazil on various Art themes. And the best part is that they are all free. Besides that, the cultural center has many theaters which present good plays at good prices. Highly recommended.

I strongly recommend Centro Cultural Banco do Brasil for anyone looking for a diverse and varied artistic entertainment. At the same place for free or very low cost, you can have access to cinema, theater's plays, music concerts, library and exhibitions. If you're walking in the area, it worth your while to stop by, get a coffee and take at... More

Best time to visit is during the weekends in order to avoid downtown traffic. Exhibitions change constantly.

CCBB is one of those places that are remarkable, not just because of the quality of the expositions, but the place itself is worthy to visit. The main entrance, the dome and all the architecture is amazing. The best of all, it is FREE!

Neighbourhood Profile
Centro
Downtown Rio is the place where this city was born. With modern skyscrapers sharing space with historical buildings and landmarks, this neighbourhood is living proof that the old and the new can live together harmoniously. As you would expect, downtown is where all major companies house their offices. However, the region isn’t restricted to businesses. Gems such like the “Paço Imperial,” which is a cultural centre that used to serve as a residence for governors of Brazil, can be found here. Pedra do Sal, a Monday night street party, is also in this neighbourhood. This landmark is the birthplace of samba and is famous for its “roda de sambas” (“dance circles”). Stop in for one and get closer to discovering where Brazilian happiness comes from.
