International Museum Day Event Returns Today — What’s New For 2021 In Animal Crossing: New Horizons?

1 month ago 5 Comments

The International Museum Day event has returned to Animal Crossing: New Horizons starting today with a new prize to collect, new Stamp Stations to visit, and a handy change to item values!

Held from May 18th to May 31st in 2021, the International Museum Day event in Animal Crossing: New Horizons celebrates the real-world museum holiday with limited-time activities hosted by Blathers at your island’s Museum.

Those who enter their local island Museum during the event will find special Stamp Stations located throughout the building’s four main exhibits! By interacting with these stations, you can fill out your Stamp Card.

After fully completing a Stamp Card by visiting all three stations inside a Museum gallery, you can return to Blathers and receive a Plaque furniture item prize resembling the exhibit that you completed. These items include the Fish Plaque, Bug Plaque, Fossil Plaque, and Art Plaque.

What’s New For Museum Day 2021?

Veteran Animal Crossing: New Horizons players who have been playing since May 2020 will have already experienced International Museum Day before, so what’s new for 2021?

The 2021 version of the International Museum Day event in Animal Crossing: New Horizons notably includes new Stamp Stations inside the Art Exhibit, which were oddly missing in 2020. That means you can unlock the new Art Plaque furniture item for the first time.

Additionally, the sell price value for selling any of the Plaque items to Timmy & Tommy at Nook’s Cranny have been significantly increased for the 2021 edition of this event.

With last year’s event, all three Plaque prizes sold for a rather pathetic price of just 300 Bells each. After this year’s changes, each can be sold for 2,500 Bells or a total of 10,000 Bells for the entire set of four.

Although we typically don’t concern ourselves with item sell prices much, it’s notable in this case since you can earn repeat Plaque items by replaying the event every day throughout May 18th to 31st.

Just as with last year’s version, this isn’t exactly the most thrilling event and certainly struggles to live up to the recent May Day event just earlier in the month of May.

However, we are glad to see that Nintendo did update the event to include previously missing Art Exhibit stamp stations though, and an appropriate new prize for completing them. It was always quite weird how those were omitted last year.
