Museum - How to Unlock
Give 5 Creatures To Tom Nook
In order to build museum to your island, you need to first catch 5 different fish or insects and give them to Tom Nook. After completing this, Tom Nook asks you to find a place to set a tent for Blathers, the museum curator.
Wait For Blathers To Move In
Once you've given the bugs/fish to Tom Nook and set up Blathers's tent, he'll arrive the next day. Give Blathers 15 new specimen to unlock the museum building upgrade!
