It's finally here folks! Night at the Museum: Battle of the Smithsonian opens nationwide and Smithsonian.com is happy to serve as your hub for all things related to the movie. Here's what we have to offer:
The June issue of Smithsonian has an exclusive Night at the Museum package and includes Q&A's with Director Shawn Levy and Academy Award-nominated actress Amy Adams as well as an insider's look on the Smithsonian Institution's relationship with Hollywood.
On the Around the Mall Blog, we've got red carpet coverage of the world premiere of the film where we were able to ask the stars a question or two about their experiences. We also take an up close look at the Pile of Loot prop, currently on display at the Castle.
Smithsonian Journeys is offering a Night at the Museum-themed weekend in Washington DC where you get to experience the sights and sounds that inspired the movie. (This trip is offered only for the weekend of July 24-26.)
Planning a trip to the Mall on your own steam? Then goSmithsonian's Night at the Museum guidebook is indispensable. Available both online and at all the Smithsonian museums' information desks, goSmithsonian provides you with a treasure map to hunt down all the artifacts that inspired the movie, gives you the lowdown on the liberties that Hollywood took with history, and offers a backstage look at what went into the making of the film.
So what're you waiting for? See the flick and then come on out to the National Mall and see what all the fuss is about!
