Spend a night at this museum and you’ll be sure to see plenty of silly antics, slapstick violence and moments of mild peril. These include warring factions, stalking animals, brawls, shootings, sword fights, explosions, vehicle crashes, and the effects of an Egyptian curse. A couple of deaths are implied, a wax dummy is seriously injured when he is cut in half, and scrapes and bruises are shown. In a comedic fashion, a character is tied to a railroad track, shot with poisonous darts and mentally tormented. A few sexual innuendos are spoken, along with a couple of mild profanities and some terms of deity that are used as expletives.
