Museum Shop and Exhibition Rooms

The museum shop is on the second floor of the museum. Celeste sells exclusive museum items. You can also rent museum rooms from her.

How to Unlock the Museum Shop

To unlock the museum shop, you first have to donate at least 20 items to the museum. You also have to donate at least one item to each of the four categories: bugs, fish/deep sea creatures, fossils, works of art. After this, you will one day find Blathers thinking about something when you first go into the museum. Talk to him then and he will talk about the museum shop. After that, the museum shop will be added to the list of public works projects. Just sit in your mayor chair and ask to build a new project, then choose the museum shop. It will look like a colorful question mark in the upper screen.

After you have chosen to build the museum shop, go to your train station to find Lloid. You can give him the bells to pay for the museum shop.

Renting Museum Rooms

In the museum shop, there are four exhibition rooms that you can rent. The room number is indicated by the number of diamonds on the carpet in front of each room. Simply talk to Celeste and ask to rent a room. The cost is a one-time fee of 10000 bells to rent a room.

Decorating a Museum Room

The rooms are 8x8 and you can decorate them just as you would a room in your house. You can even change the carpet and wallpaper, and you can bring in a music player to change the background music.

Adding a Poster and Title

When you rent a museum room, the sign that was blocking the doorway will be moved to the side. You can check on the sign to change the image and give the room a name. You can use one of your custom designs as the poster, and you can enter text for the room name.

Showing off your Museum Rooms

Normal visitors who come through your gate to your town can visit your museum rooms. However, visitors to your Dream Town can't access your Main Street, so they will not be able to see your museum rooms.
