Summer. A great time to tune out for two hours and immerse yourself in the world of Indiana Jones.

No, there’s not another movie in the offing. Yet.

What there is: Indiana Jones and the Adventure of Archaeology, a new exhibit on Jones and some other, well, realer archaeologists, opening Thursday at the National Geographic Museum. (See the slideshow.)

And now, a quick statistical abstract of what you’ll see on your two-hour journey.
