The Fort Worth, Texas Museum of Science and History is currently the temporary home of the travelling exhibit, "Indiana Jones and the Adventure of Archaeology." This extremely interesting display is a combination of both the props and wardrobe from the iconic Harrison Ford film series and educational teachings about the field dear Dr. Jones immerses himself in.
The whole thing is a thrilling and exiting experience for kids of all ages. To not only be in the same room as the Lucasfilm built ark of the covenant, but also to learn things such as the daily habits of the actual rain forest tribes portrayed in "Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull" is breathtaking.
From the time fans and visitors turn the corner and lay eyes on the fedora and leather jacket worn by the man himself, to the time the infamous alien skeleton itself is seen, an hour passes. It feels like five minutes. When it's over, you will find yourself wanting to turn around and look at it all over again.
All four movies are represented. "Raiders of the Lost Ark" is the beginning. An interactive earphone and ipad display shares stories of behind the scenes history and shows clips from the movie as you walk along and check out everything from the head of the infamous staff of Ra, to Karen Allen's outfit from the bar scene in Nepal.
Short Round's outfit is part of the display from "Indiana Jones and the Temple of Doom," as well as a beautiful mat painting of the outside of the palace in the film
Sean Connery's grail diary is right in front of you as you walk by the "Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade" exhibit as well as River Phoenix's whip and scout hat.
To crown it all, the crystal skull itself can be seen. (No, your brain won't scramble if you look into the eyes.)
The exhibit is in Texas till August tenth, until it moves on to its next travelling city. You can find out all about it and when it might be coming to your town by visiting http://www.indianajonestheexhibition.com/.
