GREAT MUSEUMS is an award-winning television series celebrating the museum world—in the U.S. and abroad—created by executive producers Marc Doyle and Chesney Blankenstein Doyle. The series opens the doors of museums to millions of viewers through public television, new media and community outreach with the goal of “curating a community of learners.”
In addition to airing coast-to-coast on public television stations representing more than 85% of U.S. households, the GREAT MUSEUMS documentary series can be viewed and downloaded via iTunes, Hulu, Netflix, YouTube and SnagFilms. Additional content from each documentary is developed through GREAT MUSEUMS content preparation, production and post-production, and is exclusively for viewers who visit the GREAT MUSEUMS website.
GREAT MUSEUMS is underwritten by the Eureka Foundation, a private 501(c)(3) foundation established to promote the educational power of television and new media. GREAT MUSEUMS is distributed by American Public Television (APT).
