The Coymer Musuem is an African Art Museum at the coordinates [23,8] in the city of Quarlesbank.
Built in 1957 The Coymer Museum was the first museum to be built in the area. It was primarily built as a way of adding some interest to Quarlesbank, by which time had become a more industrial city thanks to the Pitman Family. Although Quarlesbank was suffering from the after effects of the waste which was dumped around the suburb, The Coymer Museum represented a slow but sure re-think to the types of building in the suburb. Because of this Lord Pitman took special interest in the building during his later life where he studied african symbols and art.
These days the remains of the museum are charred and burnt from the purging of the suburb since the initial outbreak. The grand entrance has been ransacked by local survivors for fuel and building materials and now looks more like a disused warehouse apart from the odd untouched exhibit.
Rumours circulated by the residents of the suburb proclaim that it was here that Lord Pitman first began his experiments. It is also said that Lord Pitman formed a book with the curator which held their beliefs and interpretations of the symbols and art.
Finally, to those who are brave enough to stay the night, it is also said that chanting has sometimes been heard coming from within the dark rooms, however to this day, the source has never been discovered. Residents are advised to make up their own mind as to who (or what) is performing the chants, is it ghosts of the past or is there still an evil cult that resides there? Currently, the only clue to the identity of the museum's current residents is graffiti of a dog on the unhinged doors. It is suspected that this graffiti could be from some of Pitman's followers, however as with much of the history surrounding Lord Pitman, it is a mystery and will probably be a mystery for a long time to come.
