Night at the Museum: Secret of the Tomb

Continuity mistake: When Larry and Nick Daley first enter the British Museum, Nick takes his beanie off twice, in consecutive shots.

Plot hole: In Night at the Museum 2, the parts of the tablet that are missing were attached to the gate to the underworld, which implies it was originally attached to that, and those parts were left behind when it was removed. But in this film we see the tablet getting found on the wall in Ahkmenrah's tomb, and the missing parts are left behind on the wall of the tomb.

Continuity mistake: When Nick and Attila lock Tilly in her office, they use a broom to secure the door. The broom changes angles depending on the view from the inside of her office or the view from outside.


Factual error: There are actually no dinosaur remains at the British Museum. There used to be, many many years back, but they were removed to the Natural History Museum, which is about 3 miles from the British Museum.

Other mistake: The lost cape from the mini soldier was blowing out of a return air duct that was actually sucking air in to an air filter.
