Marvel: Faberge [12 Days of HMNS]

Today is the Sixth Day of HMNS! In the spirit of the classic holiday carol, we’re taking 12 days to feature 12 different videos that preview or go behind-the-scenes of a holiday museum activity, here on the blog (or, you can get a sneak peek at all the videos on – we won’t tell).

Of the 12 videos we produced, this is my favorite – our President, and curator of Gems and Minerals, Joel Bartsch, gave us a behind-the-scenes look at the Empress Josephine Tiara (now on display in the excellent Faberge exhibit), and it. is. STUNNING. Plus, it has a really cool story behind it.
