Very happy to have found this site, as someone here might have the answer to a question that has been bothering me for years. It would be great to find out whether this film was real or just a dream!

I remember seeing a movie when I was very young that may have been released exclusively for TV, probably sometime in the 1990s or even early 2000s. A family was visiting a museum, and a bolt of lightning struck one of the paintings, turning it into a portal. One of the museum visitors was instantly transported into the painting, and one of the subjects in the painting was sent into our world in exchange. The painting was a medieval scene. I recall one of the characters in the film as a bumbling knight, and in the family visiting the museum, there was at least one daughter and a father. They had to wait for another bolt of lightning to return their family member to the real world.

That is all I remember of the movie. It has been rather frustrating, as I do not recall the explanation they gave for the painting becoming a portal, or what became of the family.

Thank you in advance! Any suggestions are appreciated.

It sound like night at the magic museum or mysterious museum. (I think they are the same movie but not sure.)
