The Farway Museum (遠方の美術館, literally Museum Of Afar) is a museum in Animal Crossing and Animal Forest e+ that players have to send unidentified fossils to in order to have them identified. In the GCN games the museum served primarily for one this purpose, as Blathers, the curator of the town's museum, was not qualified to do appraise such objects. In subsequent games Blathers had been approved for fossil identification and the Farway Museum has not been mentioned since, though it still presumably exists.
There is no limit to the amount of fossils that can be sent to the Museum in a single day. However, only three will be delivered back to the player each day, with the rest delivered on succeeding days.The Farway Museum is never seen in-game, but is referred to in Wild World, when Blathers talks of how he acquired his job. He claims that no-one from the Farway Museum would move to fill the post of curator at a new rural museum, so he was suggested for the job.
