Night at the Museum was first released in 2006, and this fantasy-comedy film directed by Shawn Levy garnered a large fanbase. It was based on the 1993 children’s book of the same name and stars Ben Stiller as Larry Daley, a divorced father who applies for a job as a night watchman at New York City’s American Museum of Natural History. This is where he discovers that the exhibits, animated by a magical Egyptian artifact, come to life at night. Now, it’s been turned into a 2,900-piece LEGO Ideas set.
Brick artist Nicolas Carlier has been recreating scenes from the movie for years using LEGO bricks, so what better way to pay tribute than by building an entire set based around the film? That’s exactly what he did, and what he ended up with was a museum, complete with minifigures of all of the main characters. It showcases the big entrance room and all it has to offer, including Rexy. More information here.

The night is coming to an end. I can’t talk any longer with you, I need to regain my pedestal now. Thank you for having kept an eye open on the museum tonight, you managed to put everything back in order again! You deserve some rest now!
