Centro Cultural Banco Do Brasil, Rio De Janeiro Reviews
Good place with lot to see about the Brazilian culture and past life of Brazil's immigrants and slave life. They also host lot of art and stage show periodically so that is another good attraction. Would recommend that place as it's in walking distance to other attractions and many eateries are just located at the back side of the building.
The transformation of a classical style bank into a hub of cultural magnificence is simply stunning. We loved the old elevators that even still have operators to help you ascend to the exhibitions on the levels above. The main foyer is a lovely place to sit and there is also a small bookshop
Beautiful place with many good things to do, a lot of exposition and a best coffee in Rio , called Confeitaria Colombo
Great place to see different artistic works. They bring really good collections from abroad. The best in Rio.
