Amidst the dozens of museums in DC, you’ll find the National Geographic Museum quietly tucked away on 17th and M Street, NW. The museum hosts a wide array of traveling exhibits and live events, and when I heard an advertisement on the radio for Indiana Jones and the Adventure of Archaeology, I knew I had to take my family and go. I was excited to see how National Geographic would bring to life the popular movie series, so we headed into DC one recent afternoon. For all you Hollywood fans, explorers and adventurers, here are several reasons to check out this unique exhibit, and unleash your inner Indiana Jones.
The museum is open daily from 10-6, unless there is a special event. We visited on a Wednesday afternoon and found the crowd to be quite small. Though not required, you can purchase tickets in advance on the National Geographic website. Kids can also preview the exhibit at the Indiana Jones exhibition website and read more about real-life adventures from the National Geographic Society. This great adventure is only at the museum until January 3, 2016.
