Time Out Rio de Janeiro


Free exhibitions all year-round!.

CCBB is the former central office of the Banco do Brasil. The first three floors are home to the most popular exhibitions in Rio, ranging from famous Brazilian sculptors and painters to international retrospectives and in-depth histories of specific art forms.

Until September 22nd CCBB welcomes you to its Salvador Dalí exhibition, which presents around 150 of the surrealist artist’s works, including paintings, documents, drawings and photographs. It is also currently hosting “Visões Na Coleção Ludwig”, an exhibition which brings together approximately 80 works which represent part of the contemporary art collection put together by the German couple Peter and Irene Ludwig. The exhibition presents trends and artists who create connections over diverse geographies. It features artists including Pablo Picasso, Andy Warhol, Gerhard Richter and Roy Lichtenstein.

And then there are CCBB’s permanent exhibitions to visit. “Banco Do Brasil E Sua História” follows the journey of Banco do Brasil, in the context of the country’s economic and financial history. It relays the pecuniary story of Brazil’s national bank, and you can even see the old office in all its dark, leathery grandeur. “Galeria De Valores” is a museum dedicated to the history of money, in Brazil and throughout the world; featuring approximately 2000 pieces from Banco do Brasil’s numismatic collection.

And for those who just can’t get enough of football, until July 14th CCBB is presenting “Samba Futebol Clube”, a musical which explores the influences of football in Brazilian art and music.
