Animal Crossing: New Horizons is celebrating International Museum Day. Here’s everything you need to know about the event.
In honor of International Museum Day, Animal Crossing: New horizons is going to be holding a special event from the May 18 to May 31. As Isabelle will happily tell you when you start the game up today.
This is a really simple event made to mirror real life stamp rallies that museums and nature centers will often have to encourage people to take a look around the entire museum and help them discover things they may not have noticed in previous visits.
When you hit up the museums and speak to Blathers he gives you a set of cards. One for the bug section, the fish section and the fossil section. The art section has been left out because, unless you’re a time traveler — which would disappoint both me and your mother — your art museum probably has enough things in it where you could count it on one hand.
As you go through each area there will be three stamp booths place through out it. Find them and stamp your card. That’s it, easy peasy.
Once you fill a stamp with three stamps (each card has three slots) you bring it back to Blathers who rewards you with a plaque. Each section has one. It’s basically a replica of the section signs and, depending on how your home’s aesthetics look, honestly look pretty nice. I’ve taken a picture of the three for people curious what it looks like before they do the five minutes of leg work it takes to get all of these.

Though the event is a little underwhelming it does perfectly emulate the feeling of real life stamp rallies. There’s a Japanese term “wakuwaku”. While it translates to “excitement,” it’s a more complex term that means that feeling of excitement when you’re running to something, whether it’s a search or meeting up with people or seeing something in the distance you’re excited to get to. And much like a real stamp rally, once completed you get that “welp, that was it” feeling of nothing. The journey to find the stamp booths did bring back some of my childhood “wakuwaku” which, I think was the point.
