  • I loved the exhibition of Pablo Picasso. The Brazil bench space is well decorated and offers lunch options within the establishment. The only difficulty is the parking lot.

  • Great programming, always has wonderful exhibitions. Beautiful space, organized, located in the center of the River, near the casa França Brasil, good call to complete the cultural itinerary in the same day. Perfect for walking with the whole family. There's always some activity for children. The theater is also good.

  • Beautiful historic building. The skylight is one of the most impressive details of the building which houses the CCBB. The exhibitions are always disputed.

  • A must cultural place in the city. There are always cinematic and art exhibitions throughout the year. Most of the exhibitions are free of charge. They also have theatre presentations. The place is very cozy and they have a café on the first floor.
