When the Museum of Natural History is closed for upgrades and renovations, some of the 'animated' museum pieces are moved to the famous archives at the Smithsonian Institute. Larry Daley gets into the action when Jedediah calls him to say that Dexter stole The Tablet and the evil Pharaoh Kahmunrah is attacking them. Larry sneaks into the Archives and meets Amelia Earhart who is thrilled at the prospect of adventure and helps him out. Later, Larry is rehired at the museum as the night guard, and meets a young woman who looks just like Amelia.

Based on the 1993 children's book of the same name by Croatian illustrator Milan Trenc and directed by Shawn Levy in 2006, this 110-minute fantasy-comedy shows a fascinating and amusing tale of the museum-wonderland.
It is a totally enjoyable entertaining piece with excellent visual effects.

Battle of the Smithsonian is the sequel to the first Night at the Museum, and Larry Daley is now no longer a night guard but the CEO of Daley Devices and he is living the life he wanted. However, while Larry was enjoying his life, his friends at the museum were not, as they were going to be transported to a different museum called the Smithsonian. The transport does not go as planned and Larry’s friends are in trouble, so it’s up to Larry to save the day, well, night again. This movie was just as hilarious as the last if not more, I really enjoyed this film and I rate it 5/5. I would definitely recommend this film.

Night at the Museum is a movie about a man named Larry Daley, who is currently unemployed and divorced and looking for a job. When offered a night guard job at a museum, Larry thinks that the job will be easy but, unfortunately this is no ordinary museum. This movie was amazing and had many funny moments, and Ben Stiller who portrays Larry did a fantastic job with his acting. Night at the Museum is a great family movie and I would definitely recommend watching it as after watching this movie, it left me wanting more. I would rate this movie 5/5.

This movie is so funny!!!! Love Amy Adams as Amelia, and Kuhmunrah is so funny!!!!!

He does not have to be divorced. It was a little bit funny, not highly recommended.

It was a little funny. In Hollywood, it can never be a married father has a nice job and comes home to his wife and kids. They are trying to separate the family and saying that it is the norm and that you can do it. They're wrong.

I enjoyed this movie very much. If you like History and wild Animals . Robin Williams played a great part. It is well worth borrowing. Ben Stiller is funny too.

very funny and great for the family. The history in it was also pretty accurate, surprisingly!

not quite as good as the first one, but still very enjoyable way to spend a couple of hours. I just didn't think Amy Adams worked as Amelia Earhart. She just isn't how I pictures Amelia looking or acting.
