Around Town: Indiana Jones and the Adventure of Archaeology @ National Geographic Museum

‘I like Indiana.’ ‘We named the dog Indiana.’

 

A cool looking exhibit has arrived at the National Geographic Museum.

All about Indiana Jones and a look at the field and science of archaeology.

There will be props, concept art and costumes from the four Indiana Jones movies and an introduction video from Harrison Ford.

The adventure starts with an interactive hand-held device, with info, photos and videos. It guides you along the “Indy Trail”, through various zones of the exhibit.

I often intend on visiting the National Geographic Museum more often, this will be an excellent excuse.

The exhibit will be there throughout the rest of the year, but don’t wait too long!
