    The answers to the tragic I-35W Bridge collapse in Minneapolis in 2007 could be found in the archives - in the form of a faded blueprint. As seen on Travel Channel’s Mysteries at the Museum.

    Can't figure out the "Sudoku" machine in the Ben Franklin exhibit? Try this sequence from top left to bottom right: 6,7,2,1,5,9,8,3,4. Then wait to hear what it has to say.
