As you know, I’m working on a Top Secret Project.
Top Secret Project #2, actually, since I still can’t say anything about anything. Shhhh! :green24
And while I’ve got a working title for the story—the museum one I mentioned a couple weeks ago—I’m starting to think I should just call it “Everything I Need to Know about Museums, I Learned from Watching Leverage.” :green13
Who knew my moderately obsessive love of the show would end up paying off? :green1 But by osmosis, I’ve picked up some nifty tips about the inner workings of museums, antiquities, etc.
I think a re-viewing of Night at the Museum & Night at the Museum: Battle of the Smithsonian may also be in order. Those will give me an even more in-depth look at a museum setting.
Nothing comes to life in my Top Secret Project #2 (more’s the pity, right? :green30 ), but I still think they could be helpful.
Can you think of any other great TV shows or movies I should watch as “research” for my museum story?
Sure, I could visit an actual museum or spend hours online taking a virtual tour of The Louvre, but isn’t this way more fun? :green15

My first thought was a couple of books. I know that isn’t what you’re looking for but Relic and Reliquary by Douglas Preston and Lincoln Child have some great behind the scenes information about Museums and are great thrilling reads as well. They did make a movie out of Relic, but it is nowhere near as good as the book.
Oh, and of course Bones has a few episodes with some interesting behind the scenes info as well.
Y’all have a great day!! :green25

I wish I had time to read a bunch of books w/ great museum deets. Sadly, I’m a slow reader & this story is due entirely too soon. :green9
But Bones…yes, yes. It does have some museum stuff. May have to track down specific episodes, but that might be helpful. :green14
