SYNOPSIS

Museum Secrets combines surprising discoveries about things we all recognize with amazing revelations about things we’ve never seen before. Every episode travels to one world-class museum to tell the stories of six irreplaceable artifacts. For each of these treasures the series myth-busts familiar legends with cutting edge research and technology, and uncovers a fascinating secret.

The 22 museums featured in the series are renowned for their rich collections, stunning architecture, and the prominent roles they have played in the history of art, culture, research and human achievement.
