I visit it whenever I´m nearby Liberdade Square (Praça da Liberdade). Besides the art galleries, I recommend the cafe and the restaurante downstairs.

This was a beautiful building with an equally beautiful museum inside also. The displays were captivatingly interesting and i dunno, surreal and hard to describe. But it envokes different senses of emotions..

One of the best places if you like exhibits. The place is an old building (for Belo Horizonte standards) and its architectural style has been preserved with minor changes to accommodate 'modern lifestyle'.

The CCBB, cultural center bank of Brazil, is situated on Liberty Square. A prodigious land reform preserved the original architecture, from the time of the founding of the city. There is a theater room, bar / restaurant, bookstore and art exhibition. A beautiful cultural walk.The square is between the center and the Savassi district.

There are four CCBBs in Brazil. To my knowledge Brasilia's is the largest one and I suppose Belo Horizonte might be the smallest. This is a cultural institution inside Praça da Liberdade complex. There are temporary exibitions, projections and plays. Info about current exibitions can be found at their website (not sure if there is an English version of it).... More
