"Greatest Mysteries" (TV show) is the umbrella moniker for a series of specials on the Travel Channel, hosted by Don Wildman, that builds on the popularity of "Mysteries at the Museum" and "Monumental Mysteries." Wildman travels to some of the most iconic and carefully-guarded places in the world, where he will share many of their fascinating stories through a unique lens of mystery and intrigue.

In the first special under the collection, "Greatest Mysteries: Smithsonian," Wildman investigates some of the most surprising stories behind artifacts in the national collection and explores some of the lesser-known Smithsonian museums including the Steven F. Udvar-Hazy Center, where he spotlights the feud behind the inventors of the jetpack. Also, at the National Postal Museum, he reveals the curious story behind one of the museum's most popular exhibits — a beloved scruffy Scotch-Irish terrier mix proudly standing inside a glass case wearing a vest with over 300 medals and tags. And, at the National Museum of American History, Wildman takes a closer look at the "Bubble Boy" suit that promised its young user the incredible hope of boldly exploring where he had never gone before.

Future "Greatest Mysteries" specials will visit the American Museum of Natural History, Buckingham Palace, the Holy Land, the Kremlin, the Louvre, the Vatican and the White House.

The "Greatest Mysteries" specials are produced by Optomen Productions, LLC. for Travel Channel. For Optomen, executive producers are Nicola Moody and Dominic Stobart. Co-executive producer is Tim McConville and series producer is Ginny Somma. For Travel Channel, executive producer is David E. Gerber.
