“Do I have to come out? Enjoying a soak in the ‘close-to-fantasy’ spa called Aire de Sevilla.” — Samantha Brown

“Rattled but relieved to have returned the [Formula 1] car to its owner in one solid piece. Even the transmission still worked. Me, not sure yet.” — Don Wildman

Tonight at 9|8c on an all-new episode of Mysteries at the Museum, Don Wildman reveals the shocking stories behind artifacts in museums across the country.

Don examines a dress worn by the star of Howard Hughes’ Hollywood flop The Conqueror. Why did so many members of the cast and crew on this infamous film die young of cancer? Mysteries at the Museum then travels to the Strong National Museum of Play, home to an unassuming lump of gray clay that spawned one of America’s most iconic toys. Then, learn the story of a faded brown document from a murder case that inspired a chilling literary classic by Edgar Allan Poe. Plus, watch as Don unveils the stories of a deceitful art forgery, a devastating cruise ship fire, and an encounter with an otherworldly being.

The year’s almost over, but don’t let it pass by without a nod to this historic milestone: 2011 marks the 100th anniversary of the discovery of Ishi. Who was this mysterious man? Learn the amazing story of this Native American in tonight’s episode of Mysteries at the Museum. Here’s the backstory:

It’s the summer of 1911, and a man in a fur cape emerges from the wilderness on the outskirts of a California gold-mining town. “To find a wild person in 1911 was extraordinary,” says Christiaan Klieger, curator of The California Museum. Even more extraordinary was the story this man’s life pointed to: He was, anthropologists determined, a member of a lost Native American tribe. But how did Ishi survive all alone? And was he really the last survivor? Learn the full story tonight at 9/8c!

Real Pirates of the High Seas

The mere mention of the word “pirate” can spark images of fantasy and adventure. You know, Johnny Depp aka Captain Jack Sparrow. But in life, pirates don’t just flash smoky eyes and put on a good show. They kill. For real.  Tonight at 9/8c, Mysteries at the Museum offers a heart-stopping look at one high-seas drama.

In April 2009, the Maersk Alabama cargo ship was sailing through the Indian Ocean when it was hijacked by a speedboat with 3 Somali pirates onboard. In the  moments that followed, Captain Richard Phillips was tied up, with an AK-47 assault rifle held to the back of his head. Hear host Don Wildman explain what happened next.

In other cases, it’s travelers who end up in the crossfire. This year an American couple saw their sailboat hijacked by pirates several hundred miles off the coast of Oman. But if you dream of one day setting sail for the high seas, don’t fret. Just be smart about it. Stay current on high-risk waters and travel advisory warnings.

And if you’re looking for pirate adventure (safely tucked in the past), plenty of options await — just check out the links below.
