GEO Presents a Panel of Experts on Preservation/Restoration

What happens when places you visit, cherish no longer exist?

September 2018, a devastating inferno blazed through Brazil’s National Museum, destroying the 200-year-old building and reducing the majority of its more than 20-million artifact collection to ashes.

A massive blaze broke out at the Notre Dame Cathedral, an iconic landmark in the French capital of Paris.

Palmyra named a UNESCO World Heritage Site in 1980 remains a key historical and cultural treasure. The Syrian government retook the area in March 2016. The ancient site has survived multiple wars and strife.

Gloria Dei, the oldest church in Pennsylvania and the second oldest Swedish church in the United States is also the burial site of many artists, explorers, and the founding fathers.
