Animal Crossing: How Many Art Pieces Does it Take to Complete The Museum

Since Jolly Redd and his Treasure Trawler pulled into players’ waters in Animal Crossing: New Horizons earlier this year, players have been able to purchase works of art from him. If players find an authentic version of the painting or sculpture, they can purchase it at a fair price and donate it to Blathers at the Museum for the Art Gallery. If they purchase a fake, one of Redd’s forgeries, however, Blathers will not take it, and it cannot be sold at Nook’s Cranny. This, along with the fact that Redd doesn’t carry many pieces on his Trawler at a time, makes collecting that much more challenging.

Players looking to complete their Museum, especially the Art Gallery, will want to visit the Treasure Trawler as often as possible and learn how to spot the authentic work amid the forgeries. There are 30 paintings and Y sculptures for players to collect and donate. Here’s every painting and sculpture players can collect to complete their Art Gallery at the Museum.

Players may be disappointed to find that there is no fanfare for completing the Art Gallery or completing the Museum in Animal Crossing: New Horizons yet. Right now, Blathers will thank the player and congratulate them on completing the Museum. Players are hoping future updates will include a reward as well as some new Museum updates, like the cafe and gift shop from previous games in the series.
