Incomprehensibly, the Travel Channel has become the "sham ghost show" thanks to debased productions such as the faked Ghost Adventures (2008), which have regrettably inundated the formerly reputable channel. Because of Brummagem like this, quality entertainment, such as Mysteries at the Museum, have regrettably been either canceled or put in the back burner. See more »
It is a great idea for a TV show, I absolutely love the stories, however, they are very loosely based (at best) on the objects in the museums. For example, a medieval clay etching, depicting farming in ancient Britain, then goes on to tell a story on crop circles. Or the story of John Smith, a barber who once cut president so and so's hair, who used this phone, that is on show at the museum of telephones... It's kind of funny how irrelevant the objects actually are.
It's also another very americanised program, in this I mean that the historical war accounts are somewhat pro-America, and twisted to paint their history in a favourable light. It's bias, annoying, and eyeroll inducing, because more often than not, there is much more to the story.
Overall it is a good show, and worth watching if you love history.
