The Craske Museum is a fortress-like stone structure in Heytown strategically situated between the Usher Building (a NecroTech laboratory), Cornelius General Hospital in Spracklingbank, and Goldney Place Police Department. Due to its location, in the center of an area that has come to be known as the Craske Triangle, the building is vitally important. There is an unobstructed view of the surrounding neighborhood from all four sides of the museum. This lends a critical advantage over would-be invaders. Securing and holding the Craske Museum is crucial to be able to effectively guard each adjacent Tactical Resource Point (TRP).

Barricade Policy

The Craske Museum is to be kept Extremely Heavily barricaded (EHB) at all times, as per the Heytown Barricade Plan, which is in compliance with the Uniform Barricading Policy of greater Malton. It is part of a critical strategy to protect the resource-rich neighborhood.


Mester Square [77,35] is the location to go for quick revives.

Current Status

The Craske Museum is often the center of activity in southern Heytown. It is less frequented than the Bowles Museum, due to Bowles' close proximity to Dowdney Mall. Please see the Heytown Building Information Center.


The Craske Museum was an African Art Museum for many years. It was once an attraction for outsiders, but never got much attention from the residents of Heytown themselves.

Built in the 1930s as a gift to Heytown by Jonathan Andrew Craske, a collector of African artifacts and one-time adventurer in the Congo and the jungles of Nigeria, the museum contained mostly African artwork, historical artifacts, and visual timelines of Africa's history. Its African Art Exhibit was smashed by looters soon after the Outbreak.

In late 2006, a small group of unaffiliated survivors took control of the museum during a zed siege of the Triangle. Because they were angry at the destruction of Malton, and the base of their operations was the museum, they called themselves the Mad Craskers. The museum is the headquarters of the Crasker crew.
