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
In Night at the Museum (2006), Teddy (Robin Williams) says the exhibits have been coming to life since the tablet of Ahkmenrah (Rami Malek) arrived in 1952. In this movie, Cecil (Dick Van Dyke) says the tablet arrived in New York City following the expedition to Egypt in 1938 (depicted at the start of this movie). In the first movie, Ahkmenrah says he spent some years in England at one of the universities, suggesting he was sent to England for many years before he arrived in New York City. See more »
Sir Lancelot's armor and the castle he calls "Camelot" are from a few centuries after the 5th and 6th centuries when Arthurian legend supposedly took place. However, ever since the 15th century, it has been fashionable in pop culture to "update" the setting of the King Arthur story to a much later time period. See more »
In stead of the standard "fiction" disclaimer, it is stated that "All the events depicted in the film are fictional and not all objects and galleries featured reflect the British Museum's collection or building". See more »
While viewing the film it is rather sad watching the final performance of Mickey Rooney who played Gus in the first film and robin Williams in one of his final film roles as Theodore Roosevelt who loons rather sad and not his usual energetic self but I think he manages to do a decent job in the role. In this installment, the tablet that keeps the exhibits alive at night is starting to lose its power and the only way to prevent the magic from disappearing is going to the British museum which would be able to restore the power of the tablet back to its glory, I will say while in some ways it closes one chapter being Larry daily but leaves the story to continue with another.
