This year marks the 200th anniversary of Brazil’s independence. To commemorate this day, the National Museum of Brazil in Rio de Janeiro buried a “time capsule” in front of the museum on November 25, local time.
According to reports, the 61 cm long, 55 cm wide, and 43 cm high stainless steel “time capsule” was coated with polypropylene paint, which has anti-corrosion and impact resistance properties, and was buried at a depth of 1 meter.

The “time capsule” contains government documents, letters, newspapers, architectural fragments of the San Cristobal Palace, the main building of the National Museum, and paintings by students in 2022.

The National Museum of Brazil plans to take the “capsule” out of the ground again in 2072, the 250th anniversary of Brazil’s independence. At that time, the Rio Municipal Government will determine the date for opening the “capsule”. Items currently held in the “capsule” will be included in the exhibits as part of the permanent collection of the Rijksmuseum.

Kellner, director of the National Museum of Brazil, said that making a “time capsule” is to record today’s memories for future people. The items in the “Time Capsule” strive to record the major events of this year through objects, images, and memories of a certain time. The most memorable thing this year is not only the 200th anniversary of Brazil’s independence, but also the reconstruction of the Brazilian country after the fire four years ago. The restoration of the facade of San Cristobal Palace, the main building of the museum, was completed
