      What to Know

      Critics Consensus

      Parents might call this either a spectacle-filled adventure or a shallow and vapid CG-fest, depending on whether they choose to embrace this on the same level as their kids.

      Nell Minow Movie Mom It's a better than average CGI-fest, more often silly than funny. But it makes some good points about courage, self-respect, and the importance of learning about history. Rated: B Apr 27, 2007 Full Review Brian Tallerico UGO With this cast, there should be more laughs, and that blame falls partially on the script, but equally on how awfully Levy paces the film. Mar 24, 2007 Full Review Rob Mackie Guardian Dark night of the soul is more like it. Rated: 1/5 Mar 3, 2007 Full Review Brian Eggert Deep Focus Review This environment could be a CGI wonderland to teach audiences something about history, if only there were fun facts here and there. You’d think coming from a movie that takes place inside a museum the audience might learn a little, but you’d be wrong. Rated: 2/4 Mar 8, 2024 Full Review Danielle Solzman Solzy at the Movies Fifteen years after its release, Night at the Museum is still a fun time. Dec 28, 2021 Full Review Leigh Paatsch Herald Sun (Australia) Thankfully, the special-effects used to simulate the static exhibits coming to life (dinosaurs, statues, warriors etc) are both strong and varied enough to prevent a totally worn-out welcome.

A NIGHT AT THE MUSEUM Is one of those movies when you know it's not great, but it still has charm 👍 Rated 3.5 out of 5 stars 03/27/24 Full Review Larry K All time classic. Must watch Rated 5 out of 5 stars 03/09/24 Full Review Kali S Full belly laughs from my kids (5 + 7). It was cute and funny and I'd watch it with them again. Rated 4.5 out of 5 stars 02/17/24 Full Review BRENDEN J Night at the Museum was a fun movie for the whole family. Rated 5 out of 5 stars 02/11/24 Full Review SkyRo P So Last night I watched "Night at the Museum" I thought it was absolutely great, why have I waited so long to see this movie. All of a sudden it's now a Disney property and then I watched it. I need to start branching out a little more. #NightAtTheMuseum #DisneyPlus Rated 3 out of 5 stars 01/06/24 Full Review Charles H Night at the Museum is a shallow and vapid CGI fest, devoid of any purpose or meaning, and it shows.
