What people are saying:

I stumbled across this place to get out of the beating sun. Situated near Rio's port, Centro Cultural do Banco - a former bank - is now a public space with several exhibitions and performance areas. The exhibition on Berlin that I saw was simply excellent. Well-curated - with a mix of sound, visuals and explanations - and extremely informative. My favorite part of this place are the bank safes that house some of the art work.

    Touring Rio

    Stopped into Centro culture Banco and thought it was pretty cool I believe that they change out the art pieces every 6 months with myself not able to speak Portuguese that is what I gathered.

    Good for Art lovers

    We saw this place near to the church and we had some time so we visited. The interiors were were beautiful. I am not much into museums but the art lovers would surely love the place.

    Enjoyable

    We liked the building and the contents even though we are not big on museums. We had a bite in the cafe and it was fine.

Additional Information

Introduction

Dating back to the 19th century, the Centro Cultural do Banco do Brasil is situated in the heart of Downtown Rio De Janeiro. What at one time was a bank was eventually turned into a cultural center, and there, visitors can take a tour of the center at no cost. Exhibits in the exhibit rooms change commonly, with the exception of a collection of Brazilian coins that are always being shown. Also on the premises, the cultural center has a library, cinema, video room and three theaters all devoted to anything from photography to other experimental films.
