History is larger than life—and twice as funny—in this monumental comedy sequel that’s “better than the original” (At the Movies)!
Ben Stiller leads an all-star cast (including Amy Adams, Owen Wilson, Hank Azaria and Robin Williams) as Larry Daley, a former night watchman at the Museum of Natural History, where the exhibits come to life after dark. But now Larry’s nocturnal friends are being retired to the archives of the Smithsonian Institution, luring him back for a hilarious, all-out battle against museum misfits who plan to take over the Smithsonian...and the world!

Cast & Crew
It's a collection of some of the most interesting figures throughout history and some of the most talented performers we have working today.
This is a family comedy that will entertain the kids and amuse the grown-ups. It's also a rare Hollywood sequel that's better than the original.
Night at the Museum: Battle of the Smithsonian, is breezier than the first Museum, at least to me, which means in three years I'll be revising my opinion downward.
Azaria pretty much steals the show.
Pleasant, innocuous and intermittently thrilling family entertainment.
The film offers enough ingenious touches and playful humor that the less-inspired elements hit with a screech.
Battle of the Smithsonian is packed with odd characters, eccentric arguments and ornate special effects, and while it's never transcendently funny enough to be seriously impressive, it is chock full of family-friendly giggles.
