International Museum Day
|May 18th — 31st|
International Museum Day is an event introduced in Animal Crossing: New Horizons held from May 18th through May 31st, based on the real-world observance of the same name. During this event, the bug, fish, and fossil galleries will each contain three stamp stations which may change location each day. Interacting with the stations will let the player stamp their card. After obtaining all three stamps from a gallery, the player can talk to Blathers, who will congratulate them and give them a completion stamp and a prize — a plaque based on the gallery associated with the completed card. The stamp rally can be done again, but the same prizes will be handed out upon completion.
