When the Indiana Jones franchise debuted with “Raiders of the Lost Ark” in 1981, the resulting iconic movie series starring a charming Harrison Ford sparked wide public interest in archaeology and exploration.
More than 30 years later, National Geographic and Lucasfilm have teamed with X3 Productions on the Indiana Jones and the Adventure of Archaeology exhibition, which opens in the U.S. on October 12 (and runs through April 21, 2013) at the Discovery Science Center in Santa Ana, Calif. The touring exhibit previously stopped in Montreal and Valencia, Spain.
The photos are kind of nice, but I wish they were bigger. They appear to have some of the props and outfits, including the original gold statue from the first scene and a couple of the womens’ outfits. The actual exhibit page is here.
