Exhibition space, forum for discussions and multimedia stage, the CCBB has been a center of reference for cultural activities in the city center of Rio de Janeiro. Since its inauguration in 1989, it has been taking the institutional role for the development and preservation of heritage dating back to the formation of the former Library of the Banco do Brazil, in 1931, as well as the acquisition of the first collection of Brazilian coins and bills, in 1936. 

Besides the History and Memory Archive, the CCBB houses spaces for different cultural activities, such as permanent exhibitions “The Bank of Brazil and its History,” which deals with the history of the  institution and, in parallel, addresses the economic and financial development of the country, and the “Gallery of Values”, which tells the story of the currency in Brazil and in the world, with about two thousand pieces.
