Museum is set in the early 20th Century, at a time when famous museums around the world competed for newly-discovered archeological relics for their growing displays. As museum curators, the players try to collect the most impressive exhibits of Incan, Polynesian, Greek, Roman, and Egyptian artifacts, theming their exhibits around architecture, navigation, and theology.
Holy Grail Games funded the production of Museum through a Kickstarter campaign in late 2017 which attracted €253,328 (about $300,219) in pledged support from 3,684 backers (an average of €68.76—$81.49—per backer). Backer fulfillment began last month, with the game releasing into the trade next week.
Museum will be the first game distributed through a new partnership between Holy Grail and Luma Games (see “Holy Grail Games Signs with Luma for North America”).
