International Museum Day Event Details

Event Procedure

1Talk to Blathers in the Museum
2Collect the Bug, Fish, and Fossil stamps
3Go back and talk to Blathers to get your reward

① Talk To Blathers

Museum Day

Starting at 5am on May 18th, you'll be able to participate in the International Museum Day event! Simply go to the Museum and talk to Blathers to start it. You will need to have the museum built to access this event, of course.

② Collect Bug, Fish, and Fossil Stamps

Museum Day

Your task for this event is to collect 3 stamps for each of the 3 stamp cards. (Note that there is no card for Art). Different stamp cards will have different locations on them, so thoroughly check every nook and cranny of the exhibit!

Stamp Location Examples

Stamp Location 1
Stamp Location 2
Stamp Location 3

Note that every day the stamps you need will change!

③ Talk To Blathers To Get Your Reward

Museum Day

After you've collected all the stamps, talk to Blathers to get your reward. If you finish all 3 and talk to him, you won't get all 3 prizes at once - you'll have to talk to him three separate times.

Stamp Rally Rewards

Get Rewards Every Day

Get The Same Rewards

"The same rewards are available for you to get today as well, so please give the Stamp Rally another try!"

While the International Museum Day event is active, you'll be able to do the stamp rally and get rewards once per day! The actual rewards you get won't change, so if you don't want to do it again there is no need to.

Stamp Locations Change Every Day

Every day the location of stamps that you need to collect will change. This is a good opportunity to get to know parts of the Museum you may never have been to before, so give it a try!

Stamp Rally Rewards

Added To Your Inventory

The rewards for this event will be deposited directly into your inventory after talking to Blathers - they will not be mailed to you! Make sure your inventory isn't full before talking to Blathers.

Museum Day Not Happening - How To Fix

Update Your Game

In order to take part in seasonal events, you'll need to upgrade your system to the latest version. If you don't have the latest patch, make sure you update everything!

Change Time To One Day Before The Event

If you've been doing time traveling and you've set the date past May 18th, try setting the date to the day before the event and then progressing until the event starts. Doing this sometimes helps solve update issues.

Link Your Nintendo Account

In order to participate in events, you'll need to have linked your User to a Nintendo Account. You can do this from the Switch console settings, so make sure to get it done!

Build The Museum

Although it's somewhat obvious it's worth reiterating: You need to have the Museum built in order to do this event! If Blathers is still in his tent, that won't be sufficient. You'll need to collect the 15 varieties of bugs, fish, and fossils necessary to set up the Museum!

did you accidentally skip his dialogue? check the bug/fish/fossil section to see if you can find the stamping thingies, he just mentions it 1 time and the event is already started

if there isn't any stamping spots you might wanna connect to the internet again and force check your game for updates

Anonymous 1

For some reason Blathers doesn't say anything about the event, he just has the normal dialogue. My system is fully updated, I've never done time traveling, my Nintendo Account is linked, and I have the museum built, so I have no idea what the problem is. Will someone please help me?
