On the outside, the museum resembles a Gothic style church. The main door to the building is chained from the inside, but the cellar door on the side can be used to access the basement and unchain the door.
In the basement, the body of Major Jefferies and two of his squad lie dead, ostensibly to the deathclaw upstairs. The inside of the building is nearly demolished, with not much left to hint that it once was a museum.
On the main floor, at the northwest corner of the museum and near the body of Sergeant Lee in the bathroom, are several cracked deathclaw eggs. Among the shells and debris one can find a pristine deathclaw egg.
In the foyer with the chained door is the museum visitor's terminal, giving a basic overview of the museum's exhibits, including the witchcraft walk, relic collection, and membership booth.
There are two hollowed-out rocks behind the museum: one next to some graves and another behind the destroyed house.
A crashed Stingray Deluxe is located on a small island east of the museum.

- The Paper Mirror
- A leveled deathclaw can be found on the first floor, along with dead Gunner bodies.
- There is a hidden room above where the deathclaw spawns on the main floor, higher up in the ceiling. The room can be accessed by using power armor with a jet pack to fly through a hole in the ceiling. Doors in the room are non-functional and barricaded, and no stairs lead up here. There is a skeleton impaled on a table with a revolutionary sword, pinning it down.
- Desk and blackboards found indicate that it was at one point a classroom.
- If you revisit the basement after killing the deathclaw, rumbling sounds and camera shaking can still occur.
Behind the scenesEdit
The location is based on the Salem Witch Museum, located in approximately the same area in Salem and with a similar architecture. The mannequins are enacting how the mannequins are posed in real life.
