The Old World Museum was an institution that had received donations over years from antiquities collector Walter Donovan by 1938. Indiana Jones knew Donovan for his contributions and considered them extremely generous.
Behind the scenesEdit
The museum referenced in Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade is named as the Old World Museum in Rob MacGregor's novelization of the film. The Ultimate Guide implies that it is the National Museum which gets mentioned though it isn't stated directly, avoiding a potential continuity issue.
