The National Museum insignia. The Latin translates to "find, discover, learn, educate."

The National Museum was one of the cultural institutions of the United States of America, with branches in Washington DC[1] and New York City,[2] and on the campus of Marshall College in Connecticut.[2]

Marcus Brody became assistant curator at the National Museum in 1913.[2] By the 1930s, Brody was promoted, and under him many of the museum's exhibits featured artifacts recovered by Indiana Jones.

Adventures at the National Museum[edit | edit source]

In 1934, two mummies were stolen from the museum's Egyptian Room. Indiana Jones and his cousin took up their trail to retrieve them.[3]

After the death of Marcus Brody in 1952,[2] a statue erected in his memory on the Marshall College campus contained a plaque which included the National Museum's name and insignia.[4]

Behind the scenes[edit | edit source]

Lawrence Kasdan's Raiders of the Lost Ark screenplay identifies Marcus Brody as "Curator of the National Museum in Washington D.C.", but the Raiders of the Lost Ark Sourcebook has Brody working at an unnamed museum in New York City during the same time period. Marvel's Further Adventures comics, meanwhile, refer to "Connecticut's National Museum."
