Blathers is a male owl who works as a museum curator. With a green bow around his neck, he is very elegant and gentlemanly. He also carries a book with him, which is very wise. He can tell the truth about everything you donate.

How to participate in International Museum Day ACNH?

When the event officially begins, Isabelle will announce in the morning to share news of the philatelic rally on behalf of the Blathers! Not all players can participate in International Museum Day. The event will not be available until at least one day after the island player's museum has been completed or the museum has been renovated with an added art gallery. To participate, you need to go to the museum during the event and talk to Blathers, who will tell you that Museum Day is in progress. According to the rules of the event, you need to go to the Art, Bug, Fossil, and Fish galleries to find the stamp station location.

The stamp station is yellow overall with an owl logo on it, making it easy to spot. When you arrive at the stamp station, take out your stamp card and press A stamp. The location of the stamp station is different for each gallery, and you need to explore each gallery carefully. There are a minimum of 3 stamp stations per gallery, and there may be more. According to the latest official reply, the international museum time will not change in the next few years. According to the previous stamp station locations, the 2022 stamp station locations may be in the following places.

We can participate in the stamp collection every day, but the stamp station will be in a different location every day. When you have collected all three stamps in the gallery, it is recommended to return to Blathers immediately to get the reward: a plaque based on the gallery associated with the completed card.
