"'Mysteries at the Museum' is a rare commodity on television," says Wildman.  "There are countless stories to be told, each with a surprising twist.  The show hopscotches through history.  It's a fun, easy-to-take education about how our museums are crammed with intrigue."

In the new season of "Mysteries at the Museum," Wildman traverses the U.S. and explores a diverse range of the country's many curious and lesser-known stories.  The season premiere will include:

  • The investigation of a bright yellow car that once represented the promise of an automotive revolution at the Petersen Automotive Museum in Los Angeles, California.
  • A visit to the Bakken Museum in Minneapolis, Minnesota, where an armonica – a glass and wooden musical instrument – tells the tale of miraculous medical cures that came under the scrutiny of one of America's most famous statesmen.
  • The exploration of a strip of paper at the International Spy Museum in Washington, D.C. that represents one of the most thrilling espionage sagas of the Civil War.
  • A closer look at an oversized panel with red lights at the EBR-I Atomic Museum in Arco, Idaho, which speaks to one of the worst nuclear accidents in American history.
  • The inspection of a small hollow figure of a portly man that sits at the Museum of the City of New York. He represents a powerful boss whose reign of corruption was challenged by a popular cartoonist on the pages of the city's daily newspapers.
  • A peek at a model ship docked at the American Yacht Club in Rye, New York, which showcases an innovative design that was used by a courageous explorer to battle the elements in his attempt to reach one of Earth's harshest environments.
