Banco do Brasil Cultural Center

Hotels near Banco do Brasil Cultural Center, Rio de Janeiro, Brazil .

Constructed in 1880, the Banco do Brasil Cultural Center originally served as both the headquarters of the Bank of Brazil and that of the Rio de Janeiro Commercial Association. In 1989, however, the facility was transformed into a cultural center, and today is a very popular tourist destination. The Cultural Center is located in the former financial district of Rio, just blocks from the beaches of the Atlantic.

The Banco do Brasil Cultural Center today boasts four exhibition halls, a computerized library containing more than 100,000 volumes, two theaters, one movie theater, and an auditorium. In addition to hosting a vast number of cultural and artistic events, the Cultural Center serves as one of two interim Executive Offices of the Presidency of Brazil while the official statehouse, the Palacio do Planalto, undergoes renovations scheduled to conclude in 2010.

Located at Rua Primero do Marco 66 in Rio de Janeiro, the Banco do Brasil Cultural Center is open Tuesday through Sunday from 10 A.M. until 9 P.M. Especially notable is the afternoon tea service, which runs from 3 P.M. until 8 P.M. at a cost of $15 per person. Admission to the Center is free, with some special exhibits charging varying admission prices. Local hotel accommodations include the Windsor Guanabara Hotel, Center Hotel, Grande Hotel Sao Francisco, and the Rio’s Presidente Hotel. For more information visit
