Animal Crossing: New Horizons will host an International Museum Day event from May 18-31.

By visiting your island’s museum, you can participate in a Stamp Rally. You’ll be able to earn some wall-mounted furnishings for completing the rally. To participate, you’ll have to do the following:

  1. Talk to Blathers.
  2. Visit the three exhibits in the assigned section and interact with the tables.
  3. Turn in the filled-in card to Blathers for your reward.
  4. Repeat from step 1 for another Stamp Rally in a different section.

You can complete all three rallies in one day. There’s a rally for the bug, fish, and fossil exhibit.

The reward you get for completing the rally is a plaque, just like the one that hangs in the museum to designated the different exhibits.

To participate, you will need the museum to be upgraded from a tent.
