There are thousands of museums around the world, but only a few are recognised worldwide. Museums like the American Museum of Natural History in New York, and the Pergamon and Neues Museum in Berlin are in a select group renowned for their incredibly rich collections, stunning architecture, and the prominent roles they have played in the history of world art, culture and achievement.
The new and exclusive second series of Museum Secrets takes viewers inside these venerable institutions to see some of the fabulous objects inside.
Each episode focuses on a different museum and profiles key objects from the collection. World-renowned historians, experts and curators tell the great stories behind these objects, stories of inspiration and spirituality, interpretation and mystery, science and discovery, protection and preservation.
