I have actually learned a few new things
14 April 2020 | by Commodore_BozSee all my reviews

Most documentaries present their material as new and exclusive where in fact the information has been made public years in some cases couple of decades before. I don't mind hearing the same information if presented differently and with a fresh slant. Now Museum Secrets I actually find very engrossing. Each episode focuses on 1 museum and then selects a couple of exhibits or items not on public display and goes into the history of said items, even the history of the museum. I do like this series and have learned a few things from it, although some I had learned out of pure interest as a kid. What I like about this series, it isn't just American or British or Western European with a quick look at Egyptian museums, there are museums out of the normal cultures you would expect. An interesting find and a little bit different. The presentation I really like, the illustrations backing up the clear narration even though some are on a loop whilst we are told the history. More than a few articles in the series will leave you thinking "what if" and something very minor potentially having lasting effects on future events. If you have any interest in history, anthropology, archaeology, paleontology, this is a must.
