There are thousands of museums around the world, but only a few are recognized worldwide.
Museums like the Louvre, the Vatican Museums, the Egyptian Museum, the Natural History Museum in London, the Royal Ontario Museum, the State Hermitage Museum, the Smithsonian Institution, the Chateau of Versailles and the Metropolitan Museum of Art are renowned for their incredibly rich collections, stunning architecture, and the prominent roles they have played in the history of world art, culture, cutting-edge research and achievement.
Museum Secrets takes viewers on an insider's tour of these venerable institutions. Each one-hour documentary focuses on a different museum and profiles 6 objects and stories from the collection. Renowned historians, experts and curators reveal the great stories behind these objects, stories of inspiration and passion, science and discovery, protection and preservation. From the best-known iconic objects we thought we knew to the obscure pieces in museum storerooms and vaults, the series probes their fascinating history with dramatic story-telling techniques and stunning cinematography.
Season One takes us to the Louvre, the Vatican Museums, the Egyptian Museum in Cairo, London's Natural History Museum, the Metropolitan Museum in New York, and the Royal Ontario Museum in Toronto.
Season Two takes us inside Athens' Archaeological Museum, The State Hermitage in St. Petersburg, Topkapi Palace in Istanbul, the American Museum of Natural History, the Imperial War Museum in London, the National Museum of Anthropology in Mexico City, Vienna's Kunsthistorisches Museum, and Museum Island in Berlin.
