You are inside the Masters Museum, currently displaying a collection of African sculpture.
The Masters Museum, originally known as the Malton Museum of Fine Arts, is an African Sculpture museum located in the suburb of Dulston. The museum first opened its doors in 1948 in an area already known as the "Museum Mile" for the string of art, science, and historical museums stretching between Dulston to Pescodside. Of all six museums in the Museum Mile it was the Masters Museum, along with the Backholer Museum and the Sunderland Museum, that were considered the most prominent museums in both suburbs.
The Masters Museum's permanent collection contains more than two million works of art from around the world. The collection ranges from treasures of classical antiquity, like those represented in its Greek and Roman galleries, to a small collection of paintings and sculptures from several different European masters, to an extensive collection of American art. The collection also contains artwork of Egyptian, African, Asian, Oceanic, Middle Eastern, Byzantine and Islamic origins. A vast collection of musical instruments collected from all over the world is also on display. The Arms and Armor exhibit displays a collection of antique weapons and armor from around the world, primarily Europe, but also Japan and the Middle East. It should be noted that all the weapon display cases are sealed in shatter-proof glass, making attempts by survivors to access the weapons impossible although from the state of various cases it appears that attempts were still made to do just that.
While bereft of artistic merit or purpose in the months following the "Malton Incident", these days the museum serves as a safehouse for veteran survivor Brutality, who despite his intimidating name, has proven a steadfast protector of the survivors who choose to stay at his refuge. At the time a spraypainted tag inside the building stated: Brutalitys Safehouse. Sleep tight.
Noted NecroTech scientist, Caleb Usher has been known to visit these museums from time to time, even amidst all the chaos of the zombie epidemic.
Barricades should be kept at Extremely Heavily at all times. The true purpose of this building is to serve as a heavily fortified shelter for Malton's veteran survivors. This ruling was set forth by the Dulston Optimal Defense Diagram and is enforced by all member groups of the Dulston Alliance.

November 15th, 2006 - Members of DORIS persist in their claims of controlling all Dulston. Taking a page straight from Conquerors 101 DORIS has instigated a policy whereby local buildings and streets throughout the suburb have been renamed by their group, in this case, the museum is now known as the National Museum of Iraq as far as DORIS is concerned.
August 21st, 2006 - A member of the Philosophe Knights visited the museum on a fact finding mission in order to catalog the Masters Museum's collection. After completing their task the survivor moved on to Malton's other museums.
March 20th, 2006 - Brad Sykes, also known by his nickname "Brutality", continues to stake his claim to the Masters Museum. All survivors are welcome so long as they intend to cause no harm to any of the other survivors staying there.
