Tonight at 9|8c, Don Wildman scours the country in search of artifacts that reveal some of America’s most bizarre, confounding and often shocking mysteries.

Visit Washington, DC’s Smithsonian National Air and Space Museum to see the taxidermied body of one of the first mammals to survive a trip to space. If you’re in New Orleans, stop by the National Museum of the American cocktail to learn about all the terrifying myths that surround the beverage known as the “Green Fairy:” absinthe. Then, journey to Missouri to see a stack of manuscripts supposedly dictated to a St. Louis housewife from beyond the grave. Watch tonight’s episode and then let us know, do you think Patience Worth was real?

Plus, Don examines the strange circumstances surrounding the death of the legendary Grace Kelly, gets a look at the rusty bike ridden by kidnapper “Bicycle Pete,” and finds the desperate diary written by a man who crash-landed on the island of Papua New Guinea during World War II.

Check out all the museums visited in tonight’s episode, and get ready with exclusive behind-the-scenes photos.
