The Museu Banco do Brasil starts out with the mission of promoting the solid institutional history of the Bank, which is the oldest in the country, and displaying the role it has played in the cultural, social and economic history of Brazil.

Its aim is to acknowledge the public nature of the historical, cultural and artistic heritage belonging to the Bank and share it with the rest of society.

It serves to realize the potential of the collections, helping to promote a sense of collective ownership.

In the case of the visual arts collection policy, the institution has the potential to move in various directions.

There are works by Brazilian modernist artists from the first half of the 20th century, such as Alfredo Volpi, Bruno Giorgi, Candido Portinari, Di Cavalcanti, Guignard, and others.

In addition to presenting a selection of works in its first long-term exhibition, the museum may also develop educational activities and mediation for various audiences, bringing the collection to life.

The artists most well represented in the collection are those from the mid 20th century, including Carlos Scliar, Aldemir Martins, Djanira and others.
