Top ways to experience Centro Cultural Banco do Brasil - CCBB Rio de Janeiro
The area
Address
Neighbourhood: 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.

Lots of moving around going on when visited. Spacious ground floor area with a small cafe and steps leading to the restaurant. Ground floor area looks fairly impressive.

We went to CCBB a little by chance, as the Museum of Tomorrow was closed on the Monday. The entrance was completely free - we just had to go to a ticket office to get a printed ticket to scan. We saw a great exhibition on the 1st floor about Heitor Dos Prazeres, a Brazilian samba composer and poet. The building itself is beautiful and has a lot of history. There is also a fab shop on the ground floor that sells art and books mainly made by people from the Amazon, and a cute little café on the mezzanine which I definitely recommend for lunch. All in all, a pleasant discovery that makes you feel like you have stepped into an older version of Rio.

Horrible place to visit especially if you are a foreigner. There is no reception or ticket box office but just a website that is not user friendly to get tickets and only in Portuguese. When you get to the entrance you are greeted by people that have no idea what is going on and are of no help, nor are they willing to assist you.

This museum is advertised as an international place ready to receive international guests but it is definitely not ready. It’s a very dysfunctional museum. Do not even waste your time trying to visit.

Excellent cultural center in an excellent location and free. For me is the best place in Rio to visit for an exposition and other cultural events, like theatre, cinema, instalations with a excellet restaurant (Colombo) and a very good café. It's a triple excellent place.

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.

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.

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.

The building itself has beautiful architecture and an interesting history.

However, when we visited, the art exhibit was kinda disappointing. Only one floor by one artist and then the rest we couldn’t find or wasn’t available that day. Good thing this place had free admission.

They have an interesting collection of bills and coins.
