This is an awesome series! There are 3 discs with 4 episodes; each episode talks about 4-5 mysteries. These mysteries can be about anything! Little tidbits that people might not know such as; Ford built a pie-shaped house but didn't have the financing to see it through or about how the Chicago fire actually got started or Amelia Earhart's plan to cross the Pacific ocean first was changed last minute to going over the Atlantic first instead. I learned a LOT about history and things that I never knew about. This is great for the whole family especially history buffs!
1/2 hour episodes explaining the history of various objects found in museums around the country. Very excellent reenactments of the original stories. Does not require much thinking and is perfect for enjoying a quiet low-key half-hour or so.
No mysteries, a better name is History at the Museums. This is several mini documentaries about stuff at museums. Some of these mini documentaries are very interesting and you will wish for more time on that subject. Other mini documentaries you will push the skip button. Four stars because the good outnumber the bad.
Here is a cool video to learn what is out there in local museums that you may not even know of. I learned a lot about museums I have been to and didn't even know what I was seeing. A must for any museum geek give it a try
