Rua Primeiro de Março, 66 | Centro
Wednesday to Monday from 9am to 9pm
Occupying a beautiful 1906 neoclassic building, Centro Cultural Banco do Brasil (CCBB) is one of the most famous and important cultural centers in Rio. Besides its impressive interior, with marble stairways and greek columns, the complex hosts highly-rated changing exhibitions from big international artists. There is always something going on, so it is important to check the events calendar. Right in the middle of Downtown Rio, there is also a cinema, two theatres and a permanent exhibition about the history of the Brazilian currency (this used to be the Bank of Brazil’s main branch, after all).
