General Information

Description

Beautifully sculpted gargoyles dot the decaying halls, illuminated by the flickering overworked fluorescent lights. Shutters have been nailed over the window to prevent break-ins, and only a few bright beams of sunshine make it inside, lighting up the dust clogging the museum. The sculptures themselves are all either broken and held up only by crazy glue, and are covered in dust particles. Survivors are asked to wear gas masks to prevent the possibility of lung diseases. From the outside, though, it is a beacon of hope at sunrise when the pointy top of the museum glistens with the first rays of morning light. The doors have been smashed inside, and the great majority of the building ransacked irreparably, but local survivors cherish the suburb's first and foremost museum and are determined not to let it fall into the hands of the ignorant.

History

Opened in 1976 as one of the city's intense urban renewal programs to reduce the immense levels of crime pervading the city at the time, it was the effort of a combined team of city workers and hired professional contractors. When completed, the museum was originally praised for its impressive Impressionist displays, all crafted by fellow Maltonians. To boost popularity, school trips from Perram Avenue School were often scheduled, with special discounts for repeat visitors. As the museum grew, so did its popularity and the establishment was soon able to sustain itself without any city funding or school trips. When the massive City Zoo opened, though, its visitor base dwindled to an all-time low and the sale of the property to Necrotech was established. A mere week before the museum was set to close and all of its pieces set on auction, the Outbreak struck and a state of emergency was declared.
