Television Explorer and Host of the Travel Channel’s Mysteries at the Museum

For the past two decades, Don Wildman has built his reputation as a television explorer investigating historical mysteries at home and abroad.  As host and narrator of Travel Channel’s long-running hit series, Mysteries at the Museum, he escorts his audience to institutions iconic and obscure, searching out the amazing artifacts and relics from civilization’s most fascinating and unlikely events.

The series’ remarkable success has led to spinoffs–Mysteries at the Monument and Greatest Mysteries. His earlier work on Travel Channel’s Off Limits and History’s Cities of the Underworld also established Wildman’s mission to climb down into most any secluded space if it means heightening his viewers’ understanding of the story being told.

If he hadn’t landed on television, Wildman would likely be teaching in a classroom.  Education is at the heart of all his projects and he works off-camera across the country encouraging young and old to more fully utilize and support their local museums and historic sites, deepening their knowledge of the extraordinary world around them.

Don Wildman was born to explore—which is lucky.  It’s what he does every week on television.
