Centro Cultural Laurinda Santos Lobo
POINTS OF INTEREST
Centro Cultural Laurinda Santos LoboThis pink mansion houses Santa Teresa's small Museu do Bonde (Bonde Museum), dedicated to Rio's trolleys, and the exhibition covering the history of the city's streetcars is worth a peek. One of the original wooden streetcars is on view—children love to climb inside and "drive" the bonde. The cultural center also houses arts and photography exhibitions, there are regular free samba shows on weekends, and there's a small library and children's reading area.
