view web site ›'s insider take:

This exceptional cultural center, exhibition space, and museum of cinema was founded by Brazilian banker Walter Moreira Salles, whose filmmaker son, Walter Salles, Jr., won international acclaim with his 2004 film The Motorcycle Diaries. Researchers come from all over the world to browse the institute's vast permanent collections, which include half a million photographs, 400,000 literary works, 100,000 songs in recorded or written form, and 3,000 works of art. There's also a varied program of art house movies, talks, concerts, and workshops that draws in artistically minded Cariocas. The building alone is worth a visit: Set amid a lush subtropical garden, the elegant modernist complex was originally designed as Moreira Salles' private house.
