New 'Mysteries at the Museum' Specials Premiere Thursdays at 9:00 p.m. ET/PT in January

NEW YORK (November 30, 2016) - Tackling the story of the Titanic's epic sinking in frigid waters as part of Travel Channel's December Chillcation programming event isn't enough so, history explorer Don Wildman will dig deep into the mysteries of Alcatraz, the White House, dinosaurs and King Tut on special episodes of "Mysteries at the Museum" beginning Thursday, January 5 at 9:00 p.m. ET/PT. Wildman will examine the audacious escape from one of the world's most secure prisons, the now state-of-the-art command center capable of meeting the needs of the modern president, the planet's oldest and greatest archaeological mystery and the world's continued fascination of a boy king.

"I got to be out in the field, the desert and the mountains to investigate iconic stories that have fascinated generations," said Wildman. "From Alcatraz Island to secret subterranean spaces hidden under the White House and down the steps into Tut's tomb, I followed the mysteries to their sources in the museums and beyond."
