The Museum Camp is a location on Fossil Island. The Varrock Museum expedition resides here.

The Museum Camp.

After arriving on Fossil Island via the canal barge, the player will be just west of the Museum Camp. At first, the camp will not be very useful, but players can utilise their Construction skill to build improvements within the camp.

Building the camp

In total, players will need the following items to build everything:

Utility Level Materials Experience
Fossil cleaning station 5 Construction icon.png 5 planks, 5 nails, hammer 100
Bank chest 21 Construction icon.png 2 oak planks, an iron bar, 5 nails 250
Well 22 Construction icon.png 2 oak planks, bucket, rope, 5 nails 500
Cooking fire 24 Construction icon.png 2 logs, tinderbox, iron bar, 3 soft clay 800
Spinning wheel 28 Construction icon.png 4 oak planks, 5 nails 1,000
Loom 29 Construction icon.png 2 oak planks, rope, 5 nails 1,000


After building every camp improvement, players can speak to Peter just west of the rowboat for a reward of five unidentified small fossils. Along with 50 Mining and 150 kudos, claiming the reward from Peter is required to enter the Volcanic Mine.

Soil digging

Within the camp, players can also, with the help of tools such as the trowel, rock pick, specimen brush, leather gloves and boots (which can all be found in a crate next to the fossil cleaning bench), dig up numulites and unidentified fossils by using the tools on soil found in the archaeological digs all around the camp.
