Indiana Jones and the Adventure of Archaeology, opens on March 8, 2014 at the Fort Worth Museum of Science and History.  The Indiana Jones™ film series is both a starting point and a backdrop for an exciting and entertaining introduction to field archaeology.

Indiana Jones Exhibit

Showcasing items from four different collections, Indiana Jones and the Adventure of Archaeology is far more than a static display of movie props. Museum-goers learn how archaeology has changed from the mid-20th century, when Indy’s adventures took place, until the present day.

I went to a media preview of the Indiana Jones exhibit this week, where we were allowed to take a first hand experience.  When you first enter, you are handed a tablet and ear phones, with instructions on how to get the most benefit from the attraction.  The exhibit is geared for 3rd graders and up, though my 4 year old and I had fun playing the interactive scavenger hunt to collect the 10 pieces we needed to finish the game.

I can see where the exhibit would take a good hour or two to complete, since there are lots of stories to listen to.  The displays are beautiful and is definitely a must-see for anyone who’s watched all the movies.

Tickets are $21 for adults, $17 for children.
