TEXT OF STORY

Tess Vigeland: A year ago, Norway’s Edvard Munch Museum reported its version of “The Scream” was beyond repair. Thieves stole it in 2004. It was recovered, but water damaged.

The museum has undergone a $6 million security upgrade, but one traditional element remains: the guards.

On this week’s “A Day in the Work Life,” we get a tour from another museum’s guard in Washington, D.C.
