How does the Louvre protect the Mona Lisa? Why did Napoleon commission a painting full of lies? Museum Secrets travels to the world's most famous museums in search of weird, wonderful, amazing and fascinating stories connected with both the well-known and the more obscure exhibits held in their collections. From new revelations on the Mona Lisa, the Sistine Chapel and the golden mask of King Tutankhamun to the mysterious 'tank room' of Britain's Natural History Museum, this series combines surprising revelations about things we recognize with amazing revelations about things we've never seen before.

"Inside The ROM"
We unwrap a tiny mummy to find out how an Egyptian baby died 2000 years ago, then test two theories about 12th Century Islamic pottery by smoking hashish and blowing things up. We tell the embarrassing tale of a dinosaur lost for decades within the museum's walls, then visit a hard-hat construction zone where curators piece bones together into the colossal skeleton of a Barosaurus. We field test a crossbow against a musket to find out which is the deadliest killing machine, then meet the great-great grandson of Sitting Bull, who uses spiritual means to discern whether the museum's prized Sioux headdress was ever worn by his illustrious ancestor.
