About Xavier Riddle and the Secret Museum
Inspired by the best-selling kids book series, Ordinary People Change the World, by New York Times bestselling author Brad Meltzer and illustrator Christopher Eliopoulos, this PBS kids series follows the adventures of Xavier, Yadina and Brad as they tackle everyday problems by doing something extraordinary: traveling back in time to learn from real-life inspirational figures like Marie Curie, Harriet Tubman and Jackie Robinson when they were kids.
Each adventure helps young viewers make the connection between the skills that made these historical figures heroes and those same qualities within themselves, helping them discover that they, too, can change the world.
Xavier Riddle and the Secret Museum airs on PBS Fort Wayne (39.1) weekdays at 4:30pm, and on our PBS Kids Channel (39.2) Weekdays, Saturdays and Sundays at 5:30pm.
