In 1938, a group of archaeologists discovered the Ahkmenrah Plate in the tomb of Pharaoh in Egypt. The inhabitants believe that removing the plaque will nullify its magical powers. These days, security guard Larry Daley (Ben Stiller) continues with his unusual work at the American Museum of Natural History in New York. One fine day, he discovers that the piece (Ahkmenrah's plaque) that makes the museum's objects come to life is undergoing a damage process. As a result, all of Larry's friends are at risk of not coming to life. To try to save them, he goes to London to ask for guidance from the pharaoh (Ben Kingsley) who is on display at the local museum. The plaque, however, makes the museum's exhibitions come to life for the first time and makes it difficult for Larry and his friends to speak to Pharaoh and recover the damaged piece, since if the piece is not restored that night, Larry's friends they may never come to life again.
