A Message of Sympathy to the National Museum

A Message of Sympathy to the National Museum


The moment we witnessed powerlessly the destruction of the first Science Museum in Brazil, which recently celebrated its 200 th anniversary, the Institute for Development and Management – IDG and the cultural and environmental projects under its responsibility express our deepest sympathies and absolute solidarity to the National Museum in face of the tragic fire of this week.


It is a loss the country cannot account for, one which brings together the scientific, academic and museology communities, considering the preservation of our historical heritage. As Brazilians and culture professionals, we are all deeply saddened by this tragedy.


Brazil and the National Culture are in mourning. 

The IDG – Institute for the Development and Management
