Centro Cultural Banco do Brasil

Rio de Janeiro

Housed in a beautifully restored 1906 building, the Centro Cultural Banco do Brasil hosts some of Rio's top exhibitions. Facilities include a cinema, two theaters and a permanent display of the evolution of currency in Brazil. There is always something going on, from exhibitions and lunchtime and evening concerts to film screenings, so look up details in O Globo's entertainment listings or the 'Veja Rio' insert in Veja magazine before you go.
