Yes I did. There is an exhibition with modern Brazilian art and the development of Rio as they move towards the Games. There is a shop with some stuff - I bought a polo shirt. Haven't been to any of the cultural events though.

Yes it had a fresh and tropical feel and some of the art was great. I would have liked a greater sense of what Rio is like and what life is like. More about the people, like video diaries or profiles would have been interesting. The shop was quite expensive.
