There's more to the Boonshoft Museum of Discovery than what meets the eye.
There are nearly 2 million artifacts, going as far back as 500 millions of years old, behind "staff only" doors at the museum, located at 2600 Deweese Parkway in Dayton.
Here's just a small sampling of these treasures: shark teeth swords from the South Pacific, dinosaur bones, jewelry from the American Southwest, a samurai outfit, and a wall of spears, arrows, rifles and other weapons.
The museum is now offering behind-the-scenes tours of its anthropology, biology, and geology vaults.
We snagged a tour with William Kennedy, the museum's’ curator of anthropology.
