The Great Museum



The Great Museum


Thursday 13 December 8.30pm Channel 039

An in-depth look at daily life at one of the most famous cultural institutions in the world, Vienna’s most famous art/history museum. This enthralling, multi-layered portrait takes us on a privileged tour behind the scenes of one of the world’s most illustrious collections of art and artefact. Sensitively and wittily directed by Johannes Holzhausen, who has an art history background, it was shot over a year while sections of the vast classical building were closed for renovation. The documentary, without voice-overs, gives the experience of watching the daily routine of museum employees while wearing an invisibility cloak.
