Museu Nacional of Rio de Janeiro

Requiem for the Museu Nacional of Rio de Janeiro

After a personal introduction, Carlos A. L. Filgueiras gives an overview of what the museum represented and of its importance, not only to Brazil but to the world.  In addition to the report here are photographs of some of the items from the archaeological collections, as well as of the palace itself. Filgueiras’ hope is that this report contributes to a greater international awareness of the calamity which befell not only the museum, but the whole world.
