One day when Larry returns to the museum, he finds out that it is closed for renovations and upgrades. He asks his former boss Dr. McPhee Ricky Gervais about it. McPhee tells him that because not many people have come to the museum in a long time, he has been asked to replace 90 of the museum exhibits which are moving to the Federal Archives at the Smithsonian Institution in Washington, D.C. and fill the museum with new holographic exhibits that automatically answer questions on historical subjects. Later that night, Larry goes into the museum to visit his friends one last time and he is told that while Theodore Roosevelt Robin Williams, Rexy the Tyrannosaurus skeleton, the Easter Island Head Brad Garrett, and Pharaoh Akhmenrah Rami Malek will remain at the museum, Jedediah Owen Wilson, Octavius Steve Coogan, their fellow minifigures, Attila the Hun Patrick Gallagher, Sacagawea Mizuo Peck, Dexter the Capuchin Monkey, and the Neanderthals will no longer come to life since the Golden Tablet of Akhmenrah that animated the exhibits each night will also remain.After the exhibits leave, Larry receives a call from Jedediah. Dexter stole Akhmenrahs tablet and brought it to the Federal Archives and that Akhmenrahs evil older brother Pharaoh Kahmunrah Hank Azaria is attacking Jedediah and the other exhibits. Larry travels to Washington, D.C. and visits the National Air and Space Museum, the National Gallery of Art, and the Smithsonian Institution Building, searching for the Federal Archives with the help of his son Nick Jake Cherry. ........
