The Farway Museum (遠方の美術館, enbō no bijutsukan, literally Museum of Afar) is a museum outside of the player's town in the Animal Crossing series. Its major appearance is in Animal Crossing and Doubutsu no Mori e+, where 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. Despite this, it is still referenced in Animal Crossing: Wild World and plays a small role in Animal Crossing: New Horizons.

Appearances[edit]

In Animal Crossing[edit]

In Animal Crossing, the player can send as many fossils as they want to the Farway Museum in a single day. However, only three will be received the following day; the rest are delivered on succeeding days.

In Wild World[edit]

While the Farway Museum does not appear in Animal Crossing: Wild World, it is mentioned by Blathers when he 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 the player 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.

In New Horizons[edit]

In Animal Crossing: New Horizons, the Farway Museum is the institution that sends the player the DIY recipes for the Golden Net and Golden Fishing Rod once the applicable sections of the Critterpedia have been completed in full.
