It’s a blustery winter night, and you have no plans. You’ve watched enough scary movies and are ready for something a little more chill—maybe featuring a bumbling security guard, or a flirtatious game of cat-and-mouse, or Nicolas Cage murmuring, “I’m going to steal the Declaration of Independence.” 

You’re in luck! We’ve put together a quiz to help you find the best movies that are (at least partially) set in a museum. Whether you’re in the mood for a film that’s silly or serious, kid-friendly or definitely not, they’re all here, along with some fascinating facts about the museums where they were filmed. (And if you didn’t get that Declaration of Independence reference, no need to take the quiz—just drop everything and watch National Treasure.)
