A film by Johannes Holzhausen  
The Great Museum offers a peak behind the scenes of the world famous Kunsthistorisches Museum in Vienna and portrays a public cultural institution trying to maintain its integrity by balancing budgetary issues with competitive pressures. It also introduces the viewer to the complex roles of museum staff, the interdependency of various divisions and the considerable challenges that art museums face in presenting engaging new displays and managing public perceptions. For all aspiring young curators, museums studies students and anybody else who has ever wanted to work in a museum…a film not to be missed!
