About This Series

Black Museum was 1951 crime drama series that featured Orson Welles as the narrator. The show’s format basically involved Welles picking up murder artifacts stored in the Black Museum, and then telling the horrendous story behind it. The idea for the show was derived from London’s Crime Museum, which holds a large collection of murder and other crime artifacts. Since the crime museum was never really available to the public, through Black Museum, nevertheless, the listeners were able to get a glimpse on what can be found inside the said museum. Each episode of Black Museum was based on real crime stories.
