Night has fallen upon the Smithsonian Institution in Washington. The guides have gone home, the lights are out, the school kids are tucked in their beds . . . yet something incredible is stirring as former night guard Larry Daley (Ben Stiller) finds himself lured into his biggest, most imagination-boggling adventure yet in which history truly comes alive. Soon Larry faces a battle so epic it could only unfold in the corridors of the world’s largest museum. Now, Larry must try to save his formerly inanimate friends from what could be their last stand amid the wonders of the Smithsonian, all of which, from the famous paintings on the walls to the rocket ships in the halls, suddenly have a mind of their own.
Larry is clearly in over his head. But he’s got some impressive new friends – from the brilliant Albert Einstein to honest Abe Lincoln to the one exhibit who takes his breath way –the irrepressible Amelia Earhart (Amy Adams), who spurs Larry to rediscover his missing his sense of fun and adventure. Along with his old buddies, Larry will stop at nothing to regain his friends and restore order to the National Mall, from the Lincoln Memorial to the Air and Space Museum, before the stroke of dawn.
