Indiana Jones turns 30 this year(!), and to celebrate the milestone, Lucasfilm, along with Montreal’s X3 Productions, have teamed up for the multimedia exhibition Indiana Jones and the Adventure of Archaeology.
On display only at the Montreal Science Centre until September 28, the exhibit features props from the Indiana Jones films and uses the series “as both a starting point and a backdrop for an exciting and entertaining introduction to the real science of field archaeology.” Sounds pretty cool.
More about Indiana Jones and the Adventure of Archaeology:
Indiana Jones and the Adventure of Archaeology is designed to transport visitors into the universe of Indiana Jones whilst shedding light on the true nature of archaeology. An original audio greeting recorded by Harrison Ford – the world-renowned actor who brought Indy to life – will welcome visitors and invite them to begin their journey into the science of field archaeology. The Exhibition designers have created a truly unique educational environment in which to showcase a wealth of historical and cultural artefacts from the National Geographic Society and the Penn Museum. In a setting comprised of the most extensive collection of Indiana Jones films’ concept art, props and models from the Lucasfilm Archives, as well as remarkable real-world artefacts, visitors will elucidate myths, explore excavation sites, and discover the true origins of archaeological mysteries.
Indy fans should know that this is the only opportunity to catch the exhibit in North America. After it wraps up at the Montreal Science Centre in September it goes on tour to Europe and the Asia-Pacific region.
