Storyline

At the Museum of Natural History, there's a new exhibit being unveiled. Larry Daley, who manages the night exhibit where the exhibits come to life because of the Tablet of Ahkmenrah, is in charge of the presentation. But when the exhibits go awry, Larry finds himself in trouble. He learns the Tablet is corroding so he does some research and learns that Cecil, the former museum guard, was at the site when the Tablet was discovered. He tells Larry they were warned if they remove it could mean the end. Larry realizes it means the end of the magic. He talks to Ahkmenrah who says that he doesn't know anything. Only his father the Pharaoh knows the Tablet's secrets. He learns that the Pharaoh was sent to the London museum. So he convinces Dr. McPhee, the museum curator, to help send him to London. He takes Ahkmenrah with him but some of the others tag along, like Teddy Roosevelt, Attila, Octavius, and Jedediah. Written by rcs0411@yahoo.com

Trivia

At the Egypt exhibit in the British Museum, some of the "hieroglyphics" are actually Hebrew letters. There is an Aleph to the left of Sir Ben Kingsley and a Hay-Tet to the right of Ben Stiller. See more »

Goofs

Merenkahre would not have owned Jews, not only because of the time difference but also because the Isrealites weren't referred to as Jews until the end of the B.C. era. See more »

Quotes

Ahkmenrah: At their size, they'll bake like tiny little scarabs in the Sinai.
[Larry turns and looks at Ahkmenrah strangely]
Ahkmenrah: ...Too dark?

Disappointment
24 December 2014 | by ImwalleaSee all my reviews

I went to this movie because I am a big fan of the first and second night at the museum- to sum it up it was a huge disappointment . Probably 90% of the movie was completely irrelevant to the plot. I understand when movies have irrelevant parts to give the movie some comedy, but the irrelevant parts in this movie were not remotely funny and I have absolutely no idea what they were thinking while writing this. As for the other 10% of the movie that actually involved a plot- it was the least creative plot I have ever seen anyone come up with and also the worst conflict I have ever seen. If you enjoy making fun of things I highly recommend watching this movie because I could go on for hours.
