Museum Diaries

Enigmatic and enthusiastic specialists in their fields lead curious viewers behind-the-scenes of the venerable Royal Ontario Museum and on the daily adventures of its curators, technicians and investigators. Museum Diaries invites viewers behind the displays, into the bowels of the museum and out into the field. Through first-hand accounts of the dedicated curators and technicians, we explore natural history, science, art and culture. As each curator leads us on a journey of exploration, we learn about their personal passion for their field of research, bear witness to the logistical and technological limitations which frustrate them and experience the triumph and euphoria of their breakthroughs and discoveries - as together, they forge the modern-day diaries of the Royal Ontario Museum.
