22 X 1 HOUR DOCUMENTARY SERIES / INTERACTIVE WEB SITE

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.

Season Three takes us to the State Historical Museum in Moscow, the Israel Museum in Jerusalem, Palacio Real in Madrid, the Uffizi Gallery in Florence, the Smithsonian Institution in Washington D.C., London's National Maritime Museum, the Chateau of Versailles and Tunisia's Bardo Museum.

Museum Secrets is broadcast across the world and exposes millions of people to the beauty and mystery of the world's greatest museums and the significance of their collections.

Based on the 22-part television series, Museum Secrets Interactive is a media rich website which further explores the stories behind the museums’ treasures through web-exclusive videos and game-like experiences.

The series also extends to mobile devices, placing the rich layers of history hidden in each object into the hands of museum visitors in an entertaining and informative augmented reality experience that reinvents the classic museum tour. This mobile application is currently in development with History Television and Ryerson University.
