I love this show. I am a history buff and have found that this show is not only entertaining but very informative. Not only have I learned things I didn't know, I have also learned the true story behind certain events such as the Great Chicago Fire. This show takes viewers into museums all across the country (both famous such as the Smithsonian and small, unknown museums) and profiles a particular object, sharing the actual story concerning the object in addition to addressing commonly held beliefs about stories such as the Great Chicago Fire. I have enjoyed both seasons of Mysteries at the Museum on DVD and have watched season three on the Travel Channel.
My only complaint about season two is that the DVD contains 10 of the 12 episodes that were aired on TV. What happened to the other two? The episodes that were left off the DVD were episode #6 (Aldrich Ames mailbox/Belle Gunness) and episode 8 (The real battle of LA/California Venus). I hope that the producers will include these two episodes when they release season three on DVD and hopefully that will be SOON!!!
I wholeheartedly recommend this show to anyone who loves history. Believe me, you will be surprised at the information that is presented.

Caught the end of an episode on Foxtel one day in Australia, enjoyed what I saw very much, good to see Don Wildman get another gig after Cities of the Underground can canned prematurely. Delivery was fast and effective, packaged well, no damage after traveling across the world to South Australia.

I purchased this and the first season as an early birthday gift for my mom. She was delighted with it. If you love history, mysteries, unusually stories told extremely well, this is for you. Best part~no commercials compared to watching it on tv or on-demand.

This series is great for all people! History buffs, educators, military, and anyone who likes to learn about how and why everyday things have come to pass. There are 2 discs with about 6 episodes each; each one of those episodes includes 4-5 different mysteries. If you have ever wondered about how the slinky came about or silly putty or how Houdini actually died, this is the series for you! It's great as a gift as well. I got this for my dad for his birthday and he loves it.
