In 1998 I visited the museum and over two days felt like I barely was able to scratch the surface. This series offers a fascinating look and unparalleled access to facets of the Museum not accessible to visitors: behind-the-scenes, field work. This show is a treasure, I'm so glad to see many others appreciate it, too by the star rating. I wish there would be shows like this for the Wolfsonian Museum in Miami Florida; Smithsonian; National Archaeological Museum of Athens, Greece; and more of the world's incredible museums!
