Museum Achievements

Seren Morgan-Roberts


These achievements are all relating to the Museum. This page largely focuses on fossils and art. For information on achievements relating to the critterpedia, head over to the Critterpedia Achievements page.

Bona Fide Bone Finder!

When you find your first fossil, you’ll earn this achievement. To dig up a fossil, you’ll need a shovel. Then, you need to find a crack in the ground that is indication of a fossil.

Find a fossil 300 Discovered Fossil

Fossil Assessment

When you find fossils, you need to get them assessed by Blathers, in order to identify what they are. Even if you’ve completed the full fossil exhibition, assessing fossils is important because you get hardly any bells for selling unassessed fossils. Plus, the more fossils you assess, the more miles you’ll unlock!

Get 5 fossils assessed 300 Anonymous Something or Other
Get 30 fossils assessed 500 Ancient Truth
Get 100 fossils assessed 1,000 History-Loving Researcher
Get 300 fossils assessed 2,000 Evolving Scatterbrain
Get 500 fossils assessed 3,000 Historic Discovery

Dig up some fossils and then get them assessed by Blathers!

True Patron of the Arts

To have access to Redd and his paintings, you first need to have donated 60 items to the Museum so that it can expand to include an art wing. For more information, head over to the Museum Upgrades page. Redd will visit once or twice per week and you’ll be able to buy one art item from him (painting or sculpture).

Buy a piece of art from Redd 300 Shady Seller
Buy 10 pieces of art from Redd 500 Discerning Aficionado

You’ll be able to donate the art (if it’s real) to the Museum!

Faked Out!

Some of the paintings and sculptures Redd sells are counterfeit! Most of the time, you’ll be able to use a real vs. fake comparison page to figure out if he’s selling the real thing, but sometimes you might still get it wrong. To unlock this achievement, you’ll have to show Blathers a fake painting!
