Do you have photos of the National Museum of Brazil’s collection?

3D repository site Sketchfab has also created a collection of 25 models from the Museu Nacional that can be accessed by anyone, and invites users who might have created a 3D or photogrammetric model of the museum’s artefacts to share their work on the site.
