Indiana Jones Wiki

The Museum of Antiquities was ostensibly a Hatayan museum but in actuality a ruse by a pair of Nazis to capture Marcus Brody and his portion of Henry Jones Sr.'s Grail Diary.

In 1938, a Sinister Man and his second intercepted Brody shortly after he had arrived in Iskenderun and was met by Sallah Mohammed Faisel el-Kahir. The man claimed to have been sent by the director of the Museum of Antiquities with a car for him. As the man turned to lead Brody and Sallah away, Sallah informed his companion that there was no such institution.

Although Sallah foiled the initial kidnapping attempt, he unwittingly directed Brody to escape through what turned out to be the back of a disguised Nazi truck.
