Doubutsu no Mori e+
The Farway Museum (遠方の美術館, enbō no bijutsukan, literally Museum of Afar) is a museum in Animal Crossing and Doubutsu no Mori e+ that players have to send unidentified fossils to in order to have them identified. The sole reason for this was that Blathers, the curator of the town's museum, was not qualified to do so. In subsequent games, he was given permission to identify these fossils, removing any need for the Farway Museum.
The player can send as many fossils as he or she wants in one day. However, only three will be received the following day; the rest are delivered on succeeding days.
The museum also accepts fish, bugs, and paintings.
The Farway Museum is never seen in-game, but is referred to in Animal Crossing: Wild World, when Blathers talks of how he acquired his job. He claims that no one from the Farway Museum would move to fill the post of curator at a new rural museum, so he was suggested for the job. He tells you this after visiting and/or donating to the museum many times, as with many other Special Characters in the game. It is believed by many that the Farway Museum is a very prestigious establishment.
