Bring the whole family to this fun and interactive event celebrating museum magic. Arrive early to join ROM Ambassadors with exciting museum-themed activities including touchable specimens, Cretaceous colouring, plus, learn to write your name like ancient Egyptian royalty and more! Followed by a screening of the fun-filled comedy where the exhibits come to life.

A night watchman (Ben Stiller) at a museum of natural history makes a startling discovery: Thanks to the unleashing of an ancient Egyptian curse, the museum's animals, birds, bugs and other exhibits spring to life after the building closes, and former President Teddy Roosevelt (Robin Williams) is among those the hapless guard encounters.
