Don Wildman is fast becoming one the most recognizable faces in documentary television. As host of "Mysteries at the Museum," "Monumental Mysteries" and "Greatest Mysteries," Wildman's journey is full of surprises and adventure. Whether traversing obscure or familiar turf, Wildman’s mission is to expose the real truth lying beneath the surface.

In Travel Channel's "Mysteries at the Museum," Wildman takes viewers across the United States, delving deep into the vaults of the nation's most revered institutions and unearthing wondrous treasures from the nation’s past. In "Monumental Mysteries," he uncovers some of America’s most interesting events and greatest triumphs that are linked to the country’s history-rich monuments. In each of the "Greatest Mysteries" specials, Wildman travels the globe to some of the most iconic and carefully-guarded places in the world, where he shares many of their fascinating stories. Previously, Wildman served as host of Travel Channel's "Off Limits," where he crisscrossed the United States, providing viewers with a peek behind locked doors to uncover the secrets of the country's man-made world.

Before Travel Channel, Wildman served as the intrepid host of History’s adventure series, "Cities of the Underworld," where he explored hundreds of mysterious tunnels, catacombs, crypts and bunker systems found beneath more than forty cities and regions around the globe. Wildman has worked across a spectrum of subjects from history to engineering to sports adventure. On ESPN's "Men’s Journal," he paddled wild rivers in Chile, scaled towering mountains in Oregon, and fly-fished until he could fish no more. In 2011, he hosted the three-part historical investigation series, "Filthy Cities" – a joint venture between Discovery Channel and BBC – which landed him on the slopes of Italy’s Mount Vesuvius, delving into the infamous tragedy of Pompeii.
