  1. 20 million of historical pieces became ashes. The brazilian politicians are guilty for that terrible fire! The budget suffering an sistematic cut of federal resources ?

  2. Why would you destroy the building if not to destroy and or seize documents in the chaos? So do we have copies and photos of all the objects there? I highly doubt it, just like the Smithsonian, lots of stuff tucked and hidden away in there unknown to the public most certainly, pretty much like the Vatican as well.

  3. Tragic 😮 Wish these historical artifacts had better protection. Museums bind us to our ancestors, history and planet, and softly remind us we are all one big complicated family joined by a shared perspective of being Earthling. All of Earth's complete story belongs to each and every one of us for participating . Hoping this 200yr old museum will be able to rescue more than we think possible.

  4. That was also an Imperial Palace, the most important of all. Irreplaceable piece of Brazil's true history went up in flames. That sums up real nice what the Republic meant for us. Long live Dom Luiz! #AveImperio

  7. the taxidermy of extinct animals is a great lost of genetic information, you know that enzyme that broke down that deadly virus that will end humanity well it was only found in then the digestive tract of a extinct rain forest beetle. the only remaining one pined in a box just burned up. in a few decades we, looking for work we would have sequenced even the gut bacteria of a beetle. the information would sit in some data base somewhere. till one day someone grew it looking for something useful. finding nothing that data of what it did would have sit in some data base. till one day a virus came. looking for a cure, someone noticed that if could be broken down in some way. it could be stopped. so they looked in the enzyme data base and found it a already made, by 4 billion years of evolution, a massively complex enzyme that would work. yeah all that never happened. just a bunch of dead bugs what good could they ever be. as a whole humanity is worse off because of this fire.

  20. Brazil erasing it's history to start a new regime of lies. The next generation will never know the truth of their heritage. Instead they will embrace the NWO museum, the Museum of Tomorrow in Rio, with plans for tomorrow and erasing of the past.



    '…. will be a reflection of a world we want to build for tomorrow," said Hugo Barreto, director General of Roberto Marinho Foundation, one of the museum's partner institutions. "There is no museum in the world that looks for tomorrow that way. In general, museums look at the past," he said.
