TED - The history of museums
Museums have been a part of human history for over 2,000 years -- but they weren't always like the ones we visit today. J.V. Maranto uncovers the evolution of museums, from the first museum in 530 BC (curated by a princess) to PT Barnum’s freak shows and beyond.
TED-Ed Original lessons feature the words and ideas of educators brought to life by professional animators.
