Natural History and Ethnography Exhibition

This exhibition was just one of the many events organised to celebrate the fourth centennial of the discovery of America and the figure of Christopher Columbus. It was held at the Palace of the National Library and Museums in May and June 1893. The various documentary resources and photographs taken on that occasion, now held at the National Archaeological Museum, have been studied and the results of that work are now available to all interested parties on this website.
