Curious Minds: The Great Museums VOD // Hot Docs at Home
When you walk into a museum, do you ever wonder how the collections came to be so vast and impressive? In this series from historical educator James Thompson, we will take a lively tour through the world’s great repositories of art and artifacts, from the Uffizi in Florence and Moscow's Hermitage to the Louvre, the MOMA and more. As we examine the masterpieces that make these museums famous, we will explore the creation story of each institutions—the cultures, collectors and creative visions behind their iconic collections.

James has a BA in history from Queen’s University, M.A. in history from Durham University, UK and studied art history at the Courtauld Institute, London, where he first developed his passion for the great museums of Europe and the world.
