On Museum Men, you’ll meet the talented craftsmen at Creative Arts who produce historically precise displays for museums, exhibits, businesses and towns. If it’s ever been your dream to have your very own Oval Office, Cleopatra’s tomb or stairwell from the Titanic, these history sleuths go to extreme lengths to get every detail correct. They do tons of research and pore through every historical record to create a replica so exact, you’ll think you just took a trip in a time machine.
|1||HDClosed CaptioningVideoUnearthing King Tut||Creative Arts is tasked with one of their biggest builds to date: Help boost attendance at the St. Petersburg Museum of History by creating an all-new exhibit around the museum's own Egyptian mummy, The Lady of the Nile. The Museum Men's solution? King Tut. They will create an exhibit that showcases the museum's Lady of the Nile side-by-side the world's most well-known Egyptian mummy. But the team will have to come up with a new and innovative exhibit that can fit the museums needs and lives up to the public's lofty expectations of this famous pharaoh. Meanwhile, Daryl puts on his mad-scientist lab coat and builds a lightning-shooting Tesla Coil for science students at a local elementary school.||42:33||$2.99||View in iTunes|
|2||HDClosed CaptioningVideoHunting Nazi Submarines||Creative Arts is creating a full-scale midget submarine, the WWII German Seehund, for the Tampa Bay History Center. This life-sized sub will help visitors understand the extreme conditions the Nazis endured, both inside cramped quarters and above water at war. It will also showcase the weaponry that threatened America's Greatest Generation. This will be one of Creative Art's most complicated builds to date as the team must figure out how to best display the inside of the Seehund while still maintaining the iconic submarine silhouette. The team will also build a secret door bookcase for the VIP room at Ciro's Speakeasy. Their design must match Ciro's unique 1920s ambiance, but also function smoothly as a door.||42:36||$2.99||View in iTunes|
|3||HDClosed CaptioningVideoRelaunching Apollo 13||The Museum of Science and Industry is looking to expand their space race exhibit, and they know just the team to help them do this: Creative Arts. The team agrees to build the iconic Apollo 13 lunar module, the hero craft from the perilous Apollo 13 mission. Creative Arts will also build a heat shield for the museum's existing Mercury capsule. In 1970, a mission to the moon turned into a story of survival when an oxygen tank exploded. Their command module disabled, the three-man crew was forced to take refuge in their lunar module. With a lot of ingenuity and a little bit of duct tape, the Apollo 13 crew made their harrowing journey home. On top of the pressures of the space race exhibit, Creative Arts has taken on another, more sentimental project: a recreation of the William Wallace sword.||42:12||$2.99||View in iTunes|
|4||HDClosed CaptioningVideoYeager's Supersonic Jet||Creative Arts is building the Bell X1 for the Armed Forces History Museum in Largo, Florida. American pilot Chuck Yeager flew this experimental rocket plane as he attempted--and succeeded--in breaking the sound barrier. This record-setting flight was the envy of the world as several countries had been trying for years to build and fly a plane fast enough to break the speed of sound. Roger and his team have a unique challenge as they choose to display the airplane suspended form the museum's ceiling and not resting on the floor. The Bell X1 must be light enough--and safe enough--for elevated display without compromising authenticity of the iconic aircraft. Creative Arts will also build a Pennsylvania Long Rifle for the Florida Frontiersmen, a local non-profit group that wants to present the firearm as a scholarship award to one of their young members.||42:13||$2.99||View in iTunes|
|5||HDClosed CaptioningVideoLincoln's Last Ride||Creative Arts has been commissioned by the Sarasota Classic Car Museum to build a full-scale replica of President Abraham Lincoln's Springfield funeral carriage. This not only has to look authentic with all of the Victorian details, but it actually has to work and be pulled by a team of horses, just like Lincoln's carriage was. Roger and his team will have just 17 days to make it, the same number of days that the city of Springfield had to make its carriage for Lincoln. Creative Arts will also build a knight's suit of armor for Nate's close friend who is hoping to wear the suit in a Renaissance-era joust. Nate and Daryl visit a master armor maker and learn the way suits of armor were made 400 years ago.||41:41||$2.99||View in iTunes|
|6||HDClosed CaptioningVideoEvel Knievel's Rocket||Creative Arts has been commissioned by the Tennessee Museum of Aviation--home to one of the best historical aircraft collections in the country--to build the Skycycle X-2, the rocket used by Evel Knievel in his most famous daredevil stunt. Knievel used the Skycycle to attempt an 1,800 foot jump across Idaho's Snake River Canyon. Creative Arts will bring this flying machine to life, focusing on the streamlined fuselage and minimalist cockpit, the fighter plane-inspired nose and tail, and the signature paint scheme that matched Evel's flashy personality. The team will also be building President Kennedy's Resolute Desk for the retired mayor of Tampa.||41:48||$2.99||View in iTunes|
|7||HDClosed CaptioningVideoMedieval Torture Devices||Creative Arts has been commissioned by a Tennessee museum to build an exhibit focusing on items of torture from the Spanish Inquisition. This spine-tingling exhibit will include a life-sized bronze bull, complete with built-in door and hollow interior. Creative Arts will also build a rack and a breaking wheel to help tell this gruesome tale. The team also takes on a side project--a sidecar for a WW2 Russian motorcycle. As part of the Wounded Warrior program, the vintage bike and sidecar will be presented to a disabled veteran from the Marine Corps.||42:02||$2.99||View in iTunes|
|8||HDClosed CaptioningVideoFirst Wwi Tank||Creative Arts is building the Mark 1 tank for the Discovery Park of America, one of the premier museums in the southern United States. The Mark 1 was the most game-changing weapon to emerge from World War 1 because it revolutionized modern warfare. With no replicas in the United States, Creative Arts will have to depend on photographs and illustrations as they build the first Mark 1 ever for any American museum. The team also takes on a side project--a telephone booth for a local Florida hotel. This historical phone booth will house the hotel's prized possession: an actual 1930's era telephone!||42:20||$2.99||View in iTunes|
|9||HDClosed CaptioningVideoThe Levitating Throne||Creative Arts is building a Byzantine hydraulic throne inspired by King Solomon for the Museum of Science and Industry in Tampa, Florida. This mighty hydro-powered throne was an engineering wonder as it elevated above a ruler's subjects. Roger and his team will have very few resources to use as they recreate this throne--complete with animals and ornate jewels--using only sketches and ancient text that describe this almost supernatural seat. The team will also build a medieval crossbow for a "living historian" and archery enthusiast.||42:11||$2.99||View in iTunes|
|10||HDClosed CaptioningVideoResurrecting the Titanic||Creative Arts has been hired to recreate the grand staircase from the most famous ship of all time: the Titanic! They'll be building it for the Titanic Museum in Pigeon Forge, Tennessee. This will be the team's most challenging wood-working project to date, and they'll only have 65 days to get it done. They'll face equipment failures and learn more about the history of the Titanic as they complete their project. In addition to the grand staircase build, the team will also be building a Terracotta warrior for a local Chinese restaurant. The team will make their warrior life-sized, and paint it in the authentic style.||42:05||$2.99||View in iTunes|
