Polygon’s The Last of Us Part 2 Seattle Day 3 – Road to the Aquarium collectibles guide begins when Ellie wakes up in the theater. It ends when you board the boat. There are 3 Artifacts, 4 Trading Cards, 1 Journal Entry, and 2 Workbenches to find in Road to the Aquarium.

Esquire Trading Card location

Road to the Aquarium Trading Card 1 of 4

Once you reach the backstage area, head toward the curtain separating backstage from the auditorium. Once you reach the curtain, turn left and walk toward the mannequins, where you’ll find the trading card for Esquire, a prosecutor by day who takes the law into his own hands at night.

Workbench 1 location

Road to the Aquarium Workbench 1 of 2

From the street, enter WPL, then proceed diagonally to the back of the store where you’ll find a break room connected to a hallway. Take the hallway down to the second door on the right, where a fallen shelf is blocking your path. Go prone and crawl under it, then walk to the far end of the room where you’ll find a workbench on your left.

Tormentra Trading Card location

From the workbench location, turn around to find the Tormentra Trading Card, which is about a neutral villain.

Garage Note Artifact location

Road to the Aquarium Artifact 1 of 3

Enter the destroyed parking garage under the “No Entry” sign, dispatch the infected and follow the path around to this ledge. There you’ll find a death note from Jensen, who encountered a once friendly face among the Scars.

Tanager Trading Card location

Enter the bookstore with Jesse, and then drop to the lowest level. At the bottom, crawl through a tunnel in the concrete to find the Tanager Trading Card.

Plastic Mushrooms Journal Entry location

Road to the Aquarium Journal Entry 1 of 1

On the bottom floor of the bookstore, head to the far right corner where you’ll find plastic mushrooms in the kids’ section. Ellie will write a Journal Entry about the different meaning mushrooms must have had in a pre-Outbreak Day world.

Textile Note Artifact location

Road to the Aquarium Artifact 3 of 3

After dispatching a pack of Wolves in the street, walk under the blue, tarp-covered scaffolding to enter Boba Pals. Head to the back left corner of the store, and then up the stairs to find a letter, from Gray, who has deserted the Wolves to join the Scars, to his friend Jules, posted by the street side windows.

Workbench 2 location

Road to the Aquarium Workbench 2 of 2

Follow the dirt trail up into the clothing store. Then walk past this mannequin and down the hallway. Enter the room on the left — the one with big windows and lots of moss — to find a Workbench.

Tatuaje Trading Card location

Road to the Aquarium Trading Card 4 of 4

After spotting the boat, follow Jesse to the nearest building and descend into a cramped, wrecked area. Go prone and crawl through the rubble. Ignore the prompt to enter the next room. Instead, keep crawling to find the Tatuaje Trading Card.
