The Bearnard Museum [24,0] is a Cubist Sculpture Museum located on the northern border of Malton in Quarlesbank.
During the last few decades before the Malton Incident The Bearnard Museum was one of the few buildings built along with the Mall Rush of the late Seventies. At first it was asked to be built to house some of the artifacts from Pitman Mansion, be as time drew on it was then designed to be a distraction until Calvert Mall was fully built, however due to the creativity of some of the buildings in the area (e.g. The Elson Building) the firm 'Ogel' offered to buy the land and continuing building it, but in their unique style.
However, this was something which Lord Pitman was against. This was mainly because he didn't like the idea of a new style of building, replacing the kind which his parents had lived through during their times. Of course, once the media heard of 'Ogel' in Quarlesbank it was very hard for Lord Pitman to refuse the rights to the land.
Finally when it opened in August 1978 (a month after the bill for Calvert Mall was passed) it drew media attention to the area, which was both good for Pitman Mansion and for the surrounding buildings.
Their most famous exhibit was that of a plane made entirely from 'Ogel' - Unfortunately some naive survivors thought the plane could actually fly and now the exhibit can be found firmly lodged in the blood stained pavement outside.
