The Joaquim Cardozo auditorium hosts lectures, workshops, debates and other cultural events are held. The upper floor has the galleries for temporary expositions and a library specialized in Art and History with more than 4 thousand books, catalogues and periodicals. One of the rare volumes of the library is Gaspar Barlaeus' book, written in Latin, which narrates the history of Maurício de Nassau in Pernambuco.
