Two Lightly Animated Cats Discuss Museums
I have mixed feelings about this video--it is amusing and might be a good starting point to discuss museums and their significance with students.

This flavor because that is exactly what the video is, with the addition of cats. The YouTube description reads:

Mildly unpleasant Dead Pinky Story also included (free poster available for download at (ww.PinkyShow.org).
