    Exhibit Highlights

    Quest for Treasure

    In Raiders of the Lost Ark™, Indy is on a classic search for treasure—in this case, to find the Ark of the Covenant.

    In the past, some archaeologists searched for spectacular treasures. Today, archaeologists’ true quest is to find objects that most advance their knowledge regardless of their monetary value.

    Dig Into the Past

    In Indiana Jones and the Temple of Doom™, Mayapore’s Shaman begs Indy to find the Sankara Stone, a fertility symbol of the god Shiva, that was stolen, along with all the village children, by the Thuggees.

    Without Indy’s knowledge of the folklore and beliefs of the villagers, the stolen Sankara stone is just a rock. Find out how archaeologists piece together the stories surrounding the objects they find.


    Indy’s search for the Holy Grail in Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade™is one that has long fascinated mankind. Like a detective, he used his knowledge to distinguish the real object.

    Just as Indy “decoded” the clues around him to choose the true Grail in The Last Crusade, after archaeologists have found an artifact, they must examine the clues and symbols around it to draw their conclusions.

    Solve the Mystery

    In Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull™, Indy analyzes a crystal skull found in the Chauchilla Cemetery, revealing the secrets of its past.

    Indy’s analysis of the skull found in the cemetery says a lot about his profession. The interpretation of material remains is often the most challenging part of the archaeologist’s work.
