The year after Ahkmenrah returns to NYC, Larry and Nick, along with the NYC Exhibits and the UK Exhibits, set up a surprise birthday bash for McPhee that also serves as a good-luck party for Nick, who is scheduled to be guest judges on American Idol. Larry invites and hires many people and celebrities to the dismay of Teddy Roosevelt before McPhee returns home in dissatisfaction. He decides to fire Larry.

Larry is tells to his wife, Emily Daley, that he is fired. The couple is approached by Larry’s brother, Eddie, who moved away on Larry’s 10th birthday party. Larry tells his best friend Rick (whom he met the year before the events of the first film) about Eddie and reports to him that the Tablet of Ahkmenrah will loose it’s power again. Larry asks Rebecca, Don and Erica to tell him about the tablet and they did. Rebecca tells the story about Larry's father, Lawrence Daley, Sr. and hands him his picture. Larry likes the picture and teams up with McPhee, Tilly, Cecil, Gus, Reginald, Eddie and Emily to fix the solution. Larry remembered what his dad said, "Try not to give up, be brave." Larry, McPhee, Tilly, Cecil, Gus, Reginald, Eddie and Emily make it to the Florida Museum of Natural History. Much to the surprise of Larry, Teddy, Sacagewea, Jedidiah, Octavius, Dexter, Attila the Hun, Ahkmenrah, his parents, Rexy, Trixie, Sir Lancelot of Camelot, and Laaa join them on the quest.

They sneak in the Florida Museum and saw a hydra who is trying to eat them. The friends are saved by a wax model of Leonardo Da Vinci. Da Vinci gives Larry directions to the Tablet-Fixer and wishes him luck. Emily suggests the gang will split up. Larry, Teddy, Eddie, Dexter, Jed and Octavius encounter Frankenstein’s Monster. Jed kills Frankenstein by shooting him with his gun. George Washington shows the team the way.

At the Tablet Fixer Room, the gang figures out how to fix the tablet. Larry tells his troups to fix the tablet and they did. Suddenly, Rick came in the museum with his companions, Dan and Ross. He locked Larry, Tilly, Cecil, Gus, Reginald, Eddie and Emily in a cage and locks Teddy, Sacagewea, Jed, Octavius, Dexter, Attila, Ahkmenrah, his parents, Rexy, Trixie, Lancelot, and Laaa in a glass ball so he can destroy the Tablet. Larry and his human friends and family escape from the cage and free the exhibits from the glass ball. Rick, Dan and Ross escape in a Florida car. Larry, Tilly, Cecil, Gus, Reginald, Eddie, Emily, Teddy, Sacagewea, Jed, Octavius, Dexter, Attila, Ahkmenrah, his parents, Rexy, Trixie, Lancelot, and Laaa pursuit them. Dan and Ross get hit by a traffic light. At a Florida bridge, Larry fights Rick.

As Rick is about to destroy the tablet, he falls to his death. Larry catches it. Worried, McPhee fires Larry. However, Larry has a plan and asks Nick, who is in the middle of an audition at Hollywood and now as a guest judge wearing a silver tuxedo with green pants, green lining and a green bow, for help, in which he agrees to. Larry apologizes to McPhee through song at the launch party with the help of Nick, his friends, family and the exhibits (Dan and Ross, Washington and da Vinci are seen dancing). McPhee likes the song, is forgiven and hires Larry as a security guard. Larry thanks Nick for his help and he comes back to the auditions. After that, Larry, his friends, his family and the exhibits (ecxept Ahkmenrah, his parents, Dexter, the Tablet and Attila) return to the British Museum. Larry and the Exhibits say goodbye to each other, Larry walks outside and the Exhibits turn back to unanimated exhibits. Larry thanks his father for his help by looking at his picture and saying, “Oh, Dad, I wish you could see this...”. Dr. McPhee arrives. Larry and McPhee talk to apoligize to each other and talk about Larry being fired and Larry is rehired as a security guard. Larry and McPhee hug while the End Credits begin.
