NIGHT AT THE MUSEUM

A Brief Guide To The Museum's Exhibits
TEDDY ROOSEVELT: Long before he became a waxen museum statute, Theodore Roosevelt was the 26th President of the United States, and a man renowned for his widely varied interests and accomplishments,. He was a historian, an author of more than 35 books, rancher, conservationist, father of six children and a naturalist who made daring scientific expeditions to South America and Africa to bring back museum exhibits like those in NIGHT AT THE MUSEUM. Aside from his mustache, he is also famed for establishing the expanded role of the modern President, the Panama Canal, consumer protection acts, the "Square Deal” which provided a living wage to millions and for winning the Nobel Peace Prize, among others.

SACAJAWEA: One of the legendary women of the American West, Sacajawea was the daughter of a Shoshone chief whose skills and smarts enabled her to serve as a guide and interpreter for Lewis and Clark's famed early 19th century expedition from North Dakota to the Pacific Ocean – and also come in pretty handy in helping Larry Daley track down the museum's run-away exhibits.

EGYPTIAN PHARAOHS: Pharaohs were the kings of Ancient Egypt's mysterious and powerful empire, which endured from the Neolithic Age of 3500 BC to the Roman era of 100 AD, one of the longest-lasting civilizations in human history. Each of the pharaohs was believed to be the reincarnation of the Egyptian god Horus, and thus were usually mummified in preparation for resuming their power in the afterlife – even if the after-life ended up being in a museum!

OCTAVIUS: Octavius was the first of Rome's great Emperors and went on to rule the Roman Empire for an incredible 40 years. Adopted as the son of Julius Caesar, Octavius rose to power in 31 BC and remained there until his death in 14 BC. After ending a slew of civil wars, he introduced the "Pax Romana” – a fruitful period of extended peace and prosperity – the calm of which has been shattered by his cowboy neighbors in the museum.

ATTILA THE HUN: Attila the Hun was king of the Hun Empires and the famed horse-riding warrior who fought the Romans in the 4th Century. He became a legendary figure across Europe for creating one of the fiercest and most feared armies the world, or any museum corridor, has ever known.

NEANDERTHAL MAN: Neanderthal Man was an early subspecies of homo sapiens who first inhabited parts of Europe and Asia as long as 350,000 years ago. They are known for their short, stocky bodies, prominent brows and forward-jutting chins –- as well as for their hunting skills and early use of tools, not to mention their burning quest for fire.

EASTER ISLAND HEADS: On one of the most isolated islands in the world, 2,000 miles from any other land, in the middle of the South Pacific, a mysterious culture carved more than 800 massive stone heads weighing more than 10 tons each. Replicated in the museum, the giant heads have a few words of advice for Larry Daley.

TYRRANOSAURUS REX: AKA "T-Rex,” Tyrranosaurus Rex was a large, carnivorous dinosaur who lived in the late Cretaceous Period about 85 million years ago. Despite his tiny arms, the dinosaur's powerful body and large, pointy teeth made him a formidable predator – but perhaps all he really wanted was a good game of fetch.

CAPUCHIN MONKEYS: Capuchin monkeys are a highly intelligent species of New World monkey found in Central and South America. They have been trained as organ-grinders, pets and even as aids for paralyzed people over the years – but are noted, as Larry Daley soon discovers, for their mischievous and resourceful natures.
