Stardew Valley Museum & Library
Open Hours: 8:00AM to 6:00PM
Closed: Does not have a closing day.
Address: East side of town, across the river, south of the Blacksmith.


The Museum can be found in the South-East corner of Pelican Town, south of the Blacksmith.

The museum consists of a library with an attached gallery for displaying the museum's collection. At the start of the game, the entire collection is empty. Gunther, who works there, will ask The Player to help by donating Artifacts and Minerals, many of which are found in The Mines, as well as finding the missing books from the library. Only a single copy of any particular item may be donated.

Penny holds lessons for the towns children, Vincent and Jas within the library on Tuesday, Wednesday and Friday.

Gunther offers rewards when the collection has grown to certain points, or for the donation of specific artifacts.

There are 2 Achievements associated with donating Artifacts or Minerals to the Museum.

  • There is a total of 102 spaces available for donations to be placed but a total of only 95 available items to be donated. Six spaces in the center of the largest table cannot be reached to examine items placed on them, so it may be advisable to leave this area empty.
  • To move an item already placed on a museum table, you can click on it to pick it up, then place it where you want. You must already have entered the donations screen to do this, which means you must initially have had something new to donate. Once all items have been donated, no more moves are possible.
  • Glitch: While donating, your inventory box automatically shifts down once an item is selected. If you attempt to move the screen around (say, to reveal free display spots further into the museum) before the inventory box has shifted down, you may be unable to place new items in the display spaces. To continue, simply quit the donation screen and try again.
