IIC is deeply dismayed to hear the terrible news of the devastating fire that has consumed the National Museum of Brazil, the country's oldest and most distinguished museum. Situated in the former Imperial palace of São Cristóvão, the fire appears to have also destroyed its extraordinary and unique collection of some 20 million specimens and artefacts.
