  • Is a building located in downtown Rio de Janeiro, was initially designed to be a sailing school of Lloyd Brasileiro, but for administrative issues this project went ahead. It was then that on the occasion of the ECO 92 the space used by the post Office for meetings and exhibitions with participants of the event. Due to the success of the project in the following year the POST OFFICE made a philatelic exhibition and so the space was transformed into a Cultural Center. Looking externally the building is in a position that looks like a bow of a ship, precisely because it would be a sailing school. Watching the simulation of the building from top to bottom we have a dome where the skylight is designed with the goal of illuminating the pantographic elevator. This elevator is original and date of 1922. On the second floor there are Windows with straight Dick, while on the first floor the Windows are the Arch on the sides and ripped in front having body guard also. The entrance door is of monumental stone arch around the outline of the building. In the lobby there is a service desk with brochures touting all the programming of the House. Vale get a brochure and see exhibits and schedules. On the ground floor are located the theater with a capacity for 200 people, an art gallery, a post office and a small "bistro". In the second and third floors there are 10 exhibition halls used for larger events. On the ground floor is also the structure of male, female toilets, a special bathroom for wheelchair users and water fountains. Outside there is a small square called "postal Square", where we can enjoy the beauty of a reflecting pool and a shell. This eapaço has 1.3 thousand square meters. The Cultural Center features structure with accessibility being possible entry of wheelchair accessible throughout your structure. The opening hours are Tuesday to Sunday, from 12:00 to 7:00 pm with free admission.

  • It's a place for art exposition were you can see more than one expo. Have a great space and elevator. The stears of wood have a great design. The person who made it was a great joiner!
  • It's a small museum with a nice bistro inside. You should use the old elevator.
  • An important place to take the kids to meet the media prior to the email, sms and zaps the life, besides there is always a free paw exposure if you learn a little more, well located near the small bars and restaurants and the CCBB , is an excellent choice of instructional and free ride.
