  • I know the Centro Cultural Banco do Brasil since 2011. Its always a pleasure to be there. Various different exhibitions make it an interesting place to visit with or without family and/or friends. Especially in summer time its with his high walls a cool place to escape the heat of the streets from the center of Rio. Next to it there are several other museum, churches, restaurant places. You should avoid to be at night there. Inside the center you find small cafes for a sit in or small chats. Close to you can access the maritime museum or the naval district museum.
  • Nice historical building, elevator is cool like in the 50s. Had a egyptian exhibit when I visited and it was free. Cool place to visit for a locals and tourist as well
