I love everything John Oliver. Not only is he funny, but he explains things so that anyone can understand them. What I also love about him as well though, he does love place like Museums and Libraries. During Covid19, we forget about these little places of History. I am so glad that someone with such a big platform, choose to do this.
Remember, that a LOT of Museums are struggling, where you can do a lot for them, online.
International Museum Day is an international day held annually on or around 18 May, coordinated by the International Council of Museums. The event highlights a specific theme which changes every year to reflect the basis of the international museum community’s preoccupations.
The theme is Museums for Equality: Diversity and Inclusion.
Although, most, if not all Museums are shut, only for a moment. Did you know that, for the moment, you can still virtually see Museums! Some of them extremely well known! So now you have no excuse to see some of the most famous Museums in the world!
A lot of museums are now asking for donations, so that they can reopen when they are allowed. On my Discord channel. We’re discussing about more book or author related Museums. The Charles Dickens museum, as an example. Requires 30,000 POUNDS A MONTH to cover everything.
The museum houses more than 20m artefacts including dinosaur fossils, a meteorite and a 12,000-year-old human skeleton. There have been no reports of injuries and the cause of the fire is not yet clear.
It’s just all gone.
The National Museum of Rio is currently being consumed by flames. Over 20 million historical items are being lost before our eyes. I am so sad that I'm crying while I watch this. pic.twitter.com/C1XrwBLk3v
Basically over the years, people have asked Museums to dissect the last remaining Tasmania Tiger that had a cub in it’s pouch, and the Museum have refused…That’s right the Tasmania Tiger is a marsupial…Instead of dissecting it, they have now found a way to 3D and scan image the Tiger instead!
