About the Show


The American Museum of Natural History is one of the world's preeminent institutions and it's overflowing with tales of discovery and daring. Don Wildman is in New York, roaming the illustrious halls of the museum, to explore a notorious expedition down an uncharted Amazonian river that nearly cost a US president his life; in the dinosaur exhibition known around the world, he dives into a vicious, decades-long scientific feud that nonetheless produced a remarkable fossil record; and, in the Akeley Hall of African Mammals, he uncovers the death-defying secrets behind a majestic display of charging elephants.
