"It belongs in a museum!" "So do you!"
GONK checks out the Indiana Jones museum exhibition at Orange County's Discovery Science Center.
I recently visited the Indiana Jones and the Adventure of Archaeology exhibition at the Discovery Science Center in Santa Ana, California. The exhibit, which will be closing in mid-April, is a great experience combining the "treasures" of the Indiana Jones films (props, costumes, artwork) with a look at the real world science of archaeology, with a collection of real world artifacts and historic documents and photographs from around the world. I've got a big review of the exhibit over at ClubJade.net, and recommend going to check it out, either at the Discovery Science Center before April 21, or wherever it travels to next!
On the film side of things, they have an amazing array of key props from all four Indiana Jones films, including the key "artifacts" from each adventure: the Ark of the Covenant, the Sankara Stones, the Holy Grail, and the Crystal Skull, and so much more with lots of other props, costumes and concept and production art pieces. Plus, a lot of cool information and artifacts that connect to modern day archaeology.
Learn more about the Exhibition in general at IndianaJonesTheExhibition.com or visit the Discovery Science Center in Santa Ana. While Santa Ana is the first US stop for the exhibition, I'm hoping it won't be the last - they haven't announced where the exhibition is headed next, but I'd expect to see the news in the next few weeks!
