The Museum

The Inside Story

Find out what goes on behind the scenes at a natural history museum in this illustrated non-fiction story by tour guide Dustin Growick.

This gentle story is an ideal gift shop purchase for kids who have enjoyed a trip around a science museum. It follows the exploits of several characters—including a family, a school trip, and some security guards—over the course of a busy day. Along the way readers will discover how the museum team put on exhibitions and how dinosaur fossils are carefully preserved. They will also gain access to the incredible vaults underground that store 99% of a museum’s collections!

Stunning illustrations by Laura Martín bring the world of a museum to life—from the high-vaulted ceilings of the entrance hall to the planetarium—with plenty of things to spot in the illustrations for eagle-eyed readers.

By the end of the book kids will have a newfound respect for all of the work that goes on to make every museum experience memorable.
