Richmond Hills [38, 30]
The Futcher Museum is a European sculpture museum.
Previously a small warehouse in this bustling industrial suburb, the building was bought in 1998 by German sculptor Alexander Futcher. He gradually moved most of his most prominent work from his private estate in Dortmund to the building, and after an extensive renovation product, opened the museum to the public in March 2000. The museum enjoyed considerable success despite a notoriously high entry price and a relatively small range of works, and was well-respected by students and local artists alike. Due to the constant supply of "unique" materials from the two nearby junkyards and the growth in popularity of Hemmins Cinema next door, Futcher established a small but distinguished cultural niche in an otherwise desolate suburb.
The museum closed to the public almost immediately after the quarantine came into effect, and the current whereabouts of Futcher are unknown.
In compliance with the Richmond Hills barricading policy, the Futcher Museum should be kept barricaded at extremely heavily barricaded. According to the plan, entry should be available via the junkyards either one block east or one block southwest of the museum.
