"Caixa Cultural Rio" is one of the most actives cultural centers in Rio de Janeiro! It's amazing to stroll along its galleries and theaters. Sponsored by "Caixa Econômica Federal", a public bank, it brings to Rio the best exhibitions travelling around Brazil. I went there twice this year, attending two fantastic temporary exhibitions: "Frida Kahlo: Conexões entre Mulheres Surrealistas no... More

First time I went there was to see Frida Kahlo's exposition and loved it. Place has a nice atmosphere and is easy to get to: just in the centre of Rio de Janeiro city. Besides the main exposition, there were lots of other permanent as well as temporary expos to see.

I went there to visit Frida Kahlo´s exhibition. I booked online and it was very calm and organized the visiting. The exhibition itself was amazing and I had a great time. There was also an exhibition of Leminski´s works, really nice. The place is good, staff is friendly and I recommend keeping an eye in their agenda!

A very comprehensive exhibit of Frida Kahlo's works and influence in women of her time. There is a good amount of her paintings and also of other Mexican painters of her time.

This art gallery is downtown Rio, so traffic wise it makes sense to go on a weekend. The exhibitions are always very unique and interesting! People of all ages gather here to appreciate art in a fine, air conditioned - not to big gallery!

Just around the corner from the front entrance to this downtown bank is an exhibition space that is free to view. There were two excellent and very different exhibitions on view when I was there in August. The first featured an extensive series of sometimes morbid drawings and paintings by Salvador Dali based on Dante’s Divine Comedies, and the second... More

Neighbourhood Profile
Downtown Rio is the place where this city was born. With modern skyscrapers sharing space with historical buildings and landmarks, this neighbourhood is living proof that the old and the new can live together harmoniously. As you would expect, downtown is where all major companies house their offices. However, the region isn’t restricted to businesses. Gems such like the “Paço Imperial,” which is a cultural centre that used to serve as a residence for governors of Brazil, can be found here. Pedra do Sal, a Monday night street party, is also in this neighbourhood. This landmark is the birthplace of samba and is famous for its “roda de sambas” (“dance circles”). Stop in for one and get closer to discovering where Brazilian happiness comes from.
