Harrison Ford's Indiana Jones costume has gone on display at the National Museum of Wales in Cardiff as part of an archaeology exhibition.

The exhibition, Treasures: Adventures in Archaeology, opens on Tuesday and is due to run until the 30th of October. 

Somewhat controversially the museum is charging visitors £7 to see the famous leather jacket, fedora and whip-the first time the museum has charged for an exhibition in 13 years. 

The museum's director general David Anderson has however defended the move claiming charging visitors was the only way the museum was able to afford to have the costume, which is owned by the Lucas Museum of Narrative Art, shipped over from America.
