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.
