While many Tucsonans are well acquainted with the Pima Air and Space Museum, the rest of the country likely is not.

That could all change tonight, since the museum will be featured on a new episode of Travel Channel's "Mysteries at the Museum."

The show, which premiered in 2010, follows host Don Wildman as he visits America's museums, "where strange and curious remnants of the past are revealed," according to its website.

Very few details are available about the episode, except that "local ambassador" Kristin Tovar will also be in the museum segment, according to the Tucson Film Office.
