NEW YORK (April 12, 2016) - Expanding its commitment to exploring mysteries around the globe and the hidden history behind some of the world's most iconic places, Travel Channel has announced the renewal of "Mysteries at the Museum" with host Don Wildman. Among viewers P25-54, the season 10 premiere of "Mysteries at the Museum" rated 26 percent higher than the season nine average. And, among W25-54, the season 10 premiere rated 38 percent higher than the previous season average. In the 11th season, Wildman will take a deeper dive into local archives, storefront collections and stately institutions. Through compelling interviews, rarely-seen archival footage and captivating recreations, he'll journey to find incredible treasures.
"Don is an incredible story teller so we'll keep all the great stories that are at the show's core but, fans of the series will find that the upcoming season amps up the fun, is a bit lighter and has shorter segments that are easier to digest," said Courtney White, senior vice president, programming and production, Travel Channel. "'Mysteries at the Museum' scratches that curiosity itch for viewers - giving them a roadmap so they can travel to discover the fascinating tales behind the world's hidden treasures."
