Museum Secrets is a thirteen-part television series where viewers are invited into the world’s greatest museums to uncover surprising stories and revealing secrets. Premiering on Canada’s History Network on January 6 2011, the Kensington Communications production plans to air internationally later this year.

Many medieval and ancient history treasures will be featured in these episodes, such as a medieval parchment that reveals the true story behind the fall of the Knights Templar and a forensic examination on an Egyptian mummy solves the murder of a mighty Pharaoh.

Museum Secrets takes viewers behind the scenes into hidden places that visitors are rarely allowed to see, such as a storeroom where hordes of creatures float suspended in formaldehyde; a workshop where curators piece bones together into impressive dinosaur skeletons; and the deepest, darkest corners off the beaten tourist track. Interviews with scientists and historians offer candid viewpoints on a wide variety of topics. Through hands-on experiments and situational recreations, experts answer the often-surprising riddles of our past.
