The collection “Equipamentos da Casa Brasileira, Usos e Costumes – Arquivo Ernani Silva Bruno” is available to researchers, teachers, students and consultants in general on the site of “Museu da Casa Brasileira” and on CD- ROM. With that, it is possible to spread an invaluable heritage of studies of Brazilian houses, a task that also extends to the elementary and high school teachers, who can take the story of everyday life to the classroom. Four centuries of history gathered in 28.000 records, collected from reports of chroniclers and travelers, inventories and wills, and fictional literature.

This tool provides the consultant with two forms of searching (by subject or word), a field for storing useful results – called “my search”, which enables the printing at the end of the research – and even support texts.
