For years, film props and pop-culture artifacts have attracted audiences to museum exhibits. Dorothy’s ruby slippers from The Wizard of Oz movie are a must-see item for many people visiting the Smithsonian National Museum of American History. A model of the starship Enterprise from the 1960s TV series Star Trek hung for many years in the Air and Space Museum. But some museums are going a step further. As Faiza Elmasry tells us, curators are capitalizing on audience interest by creating exhibits around movies to tell real-life stories. Mary Alice Salinas narrates.
