Centro Cultural Banco Do Brasil, Rio De Janeiro Reviews

  • Good place with lot too see about the Brazilian culture and past life of Brazil is immigrants and slave life. They also host lot of art and stage show periodically so that is another good attraction. Would recommend that place it's in walking distance to other attractions and many eateries are just located at the back side of the building.

  • The place itself is very interesting, if you have a guide. Other than that, you'll probably end up not going anywhere, or getting lost. Not many places to sit, when you get tired. Eating in there is a rip off.

  • Best cultural venue in Rio. They will always, anytime, have an expo of an incredible artist there. Many atractions are. Just watch out when it is the last day of an expo or the artist is too famous, you may need to wait in lines to get tickets.

  • Fantastic free exhibitions, great organization and beautiful place. The library and the bookstore are worth a visit. There are also quality movie sessions, concerts and theatrical productions at good prices. The coffee shop and the restaurant are quite expensive.

  • Beautiful museum in Rio currently showing a really cool show called exAfrica
