Indiana Jones and the Adventure of Archaeology

Real archeologists are quick to point out that the Indiana Jones saga has little bearing on the realities of unearthing lost treasures for the benefit of human kind. They'll tell you that far from bullwhip brandishing buccaneers, archeologists frequently arm themselves with paint brushes and wade waste deep into piles of old-ass trash.

The Discovery Science Center features a collection of props from the George Lucas Films as well as interactive tours of the sites that inspired myths of the Ark of the Covenant and Holy Grail. Explore the possibilities.
