A rookie security guard at a natural history museum witnesses a curse capable of animating various artifacts on display, often to disastrous effect.

Larry Daley, an unemployed single father facing the loss of his New York City apartment and love of son Nick, takes a job as a guard working the graveyard shift at the Museum of Natural History in an attempt to stay afloat. It isn't long before the ever-hapless Larry learns of an ancient curse affecting the museum causing the building's exhibits to come alive at night, ultimately forced into a chaotic situation where he must band together with a variety of historical figures to stop three former guards from stealing a precious stone responsible for the insanity.
