Pro tip: just go to an actual museum
I don't think anyone thought we'd be seeing a franchise born when Night at the Museum first hit. The movie was plenty fun and surprisingly creative with a solid message that really didn't need to be revisited. Then it was, an... read feature

"Aca-scuse me?"
Nov 20
