Publisher's Summary

The Museum of Curiosity is BBC Radio 4's monumental comedy edifice, and the only one with gargoyles in the foyer. It allows nothing inside that doesn't make you scratch your head, stroke your chin or, at the very least, go 'hmm'. Fortunately, helping to fill its vacant plinths is a gathering of the world's most original minds. 

Among the guests bearing donations to the museum in these 25 episodes are Neil Gaiman, Sarah Millican, Clive James, Kate Adie, Sir Terry Pratchett, Ronni Ancona, Jon Ronson, Bettany Hughes, Ben Elton, Francesca Stavrakopoulou, Alain de Botton, Charlotte Uhlenbroek, Alistair Fothergill, Ruth Padel, Jonathan Miller, Lucie Green, Marcus du Sautoy, Sara Wheeler, Brian Eno, Shappi Khorsandi, John Hodgman, Chris Addison, Roger Law, Tim Minchin, Philip Pullman, Richard Wiseman, Victoria Finlay, Simon Singh, Jimmy Carr, Graham Linehan, Sarah Bakewell, Robin Ince, David Eagleman, Natalie Haynes, Brian Blessed, Alan Davies, Gareth Edwards, Martha Reeves, Harry Enfield, Helen Scales, Admiral Alan West and many more. 

In addition to all the episodes from the first four series, a previously unbroadcast pilot episode, The Professor of Curiosity, is also included. Running time: 12 hours approx. 

Audio updated as of August 2018.

Not complete

Each track ends approximately 6 minuets into a 30 minuet program and then moves to the next program automatically.

Great Title, but missing a few episodes

The show itself is entertaining and interesting. However, it is missing a few episodes. Frustrating, but still worth the money.

best of british humor

what a recording. the best comedians with fascinating guests sharing esoteric facts make this a big hit.

if you enjoy mock the week or quite interesting you'll love this.

Bill Bailey, Sean Locke, Brian Blessed, Jimmy Carr, Alan Davies, the editor of Viz Magazine, the creator behind Spitting Image, Ben Elton... the list goes on and on.

well worth the credits.

Not sure how I feel about this one

This is somewhat of a spinoff of the awesome QI show and that's the problem as much as I enjoyed the show, it does come off as QI Lite and I haven't decided if that's a bad thing or not.

Good, funny, thinky entertainment

This radio series fits nicely in the family of QI on TV and the No Such Thing as a Fish podcast. Interesting guests, some of whom I knew, many of whom (scientists and experts) I did not.

Great fodder for falling down Wikipedia holes.

Will be buying the next batch now.
