Larry Daly (played by Ben Stiller) seems to have a bad life: he often changes jobs and has no fixed home; his wife divorces him, finds a stockbroker, and is about to remarry. Also at stake.
In order to save his own life and win the custody of his son, Dali had to give up his dream of “doing great things” and became the night guard of the Museum of Natural History in New York.
Dali originally thought it was a boring job, but on the first day of work, an incredible thing happened: the pharaoh’s gold medal in the museum has magical powers, and when night comes, all the specimens in the museum will come alive. Come over, the tyrannosaurus rex chasing bones, the monkey who loves to make trouble, the tyrannical Hun king, the caveman who drills wood to make fire… make everything impossible to hand over. With the help of Teddy Roosevelt, the 26th President, Daly managed to get the situation under control, but he immediately ran into new trouble: the idea of someone trying to play Farage Gold. Duty, and for the wonders of the museum night, Dali had to step forward.
