Indiana Jones and the Adventure of Archaeology transforms the museum experience into a multimedia and interactive adventure. Upon entering the exhibit, visitors will be immersed in the world of Indiana Jones, in an exhibit environment created with state-of-the-art technology and spanning over 10,000 square feet. Equipped with a personal video companion, visitors will embark on a quest to uncover the true origins of archaeological mysteries. An original audio greeting recorded by Harrison Ford – the world-renowned actor who brought Indy to life – welcomes visitors and invites them to begin their journey into the science of field archaeology. Charged with comprehensive educational content, photos and videos, the interactive hand-held device guides visitors on the “Indy Trail” and through the various archaeological zones. Visitors also have the ability to create their own adventure with an interactive quest.
Indiana Jones and the Adventure of Archaeology not only features a vast and exclusive collection of Indy props, models, concept art and costumes, it also presents a wealth of historical and cultural facts and objects. The internationally renowned University of Pennsylvania Museum of Archaeology and Anthropology, otherwise known as the Penn Museum, is providing a remarkable array of archaeological artifacts and educational material. National Geographic, the exhibition’s global presenting partner, also shares photos, videos and content from its impressive and historic archive.
Indiana Jones and the Adventure of Archaeology elucidates myths associated with relics like the Ark of the Covenant and the Holy Grail and explores mythical places such as Akator or Mayapore. The exhibition also sheds light on how archaeologists really work on projects and make scientific breakthroughs such as deciphering ancient scripts, finding lost cities, and discovering treasure in unexpected places.
