Fascinating & colorful history of one of the world's major art museums, worthy of an epic film by itself!, 22 April 2003
Author: larry41onEbay from Culpeper, VA

This documentary is more on the long history of this 600 year-old museum with it's heroic and scandal filled past than on its amazing collection. Well worth your time if you can find it, packed with interesting side stories about the building up, tearing down and expanding of this monstrous edifice packed with more beauty and treasure than any other square mile on earth! And oh yeah, the Mona Lisa, Rembrandt, Van Gogh, Renoir, Michelangelo and tens of thousands of others!
