Trouble at the Museum
Help! As the curator of the museum, I'm responsible for the safe-keeping of Relics, art, and treasures. Unfortunately, the security guards are abandoning their posts. I am in need of a brave soul to assist me at the museum. Interested parties are to speak to me, Gustave Delven, at their earliest convenience.
Go offer your assistance.
Oh thank goodness there is somebody else in Champs Les Sims who cares remotely for the museum's well-being! For some inexplicable reason the security guards are quitting. They just up and leave and they will not tell me why! Something is going on here and I intend to get to the bottom of it. In the meantime, I'd like you to patron the museum. Investigate the Egypian gallery and see if you can find anything.
Zoom out to find the tomb icon and then use that to visit the Museum. Go upstairs and walk through the Egyptian exhibit. Go past the two standing coffins and through the door behind and you'll be given the option to Report In. Do so.
Something in the Chinese Exhibit?
You didn't find anything? You know, I've heard some guards mention they used to hear odd noises near the Chinese Exhibit at night. Could you explore the exhibit, snoop around a tad, and see if you can find anything?
Go into the museum. Just past the big stairs you should see a hole in the wall. Inspect the hole and then Report In.
I'll bet the noises are coming from somewhere behind that secret door. Please investigate and see if you can find the source of the noise. hopefully you can stop it whatever it is.
Head back to the museum and through the wall you opened earlier.TOMB - Under the Museum
Go through the wall and then follow the terrace to a door. Go through the door and down the two stairs into the tomb proper.
In the basement you'll see two statues and some arrows on the floor. One arrow points to a wall with a lit torch on it. Pull the torch to show two gear tiles. Pull each statue once out to the side and then push them both far onto the tile to reveal a false wall at one of the other arrows. The last arrow also has a false wall but this one is opened by inspecting it.
Go through this second wall and loot the chest then return to go through the first wall you opened (with the statues). Loot the chest on the other side and then pull the statue out a space to reveal a hole in the ground. Investigate the hole. Then push the statue onto the tile that you revealed at the end of the hall.
This tile will open up another wall in this room. Go through it and then take a right into the big room with stairs. Beyond the stairs is another door which leads to a room with three more doors, two of which are locked.
This is a bit tricky. Go through the open door and down the hall to open the chest. Unfortunately this closes the false wall. Go back to the room with the three doors and another one of them will be unlocked. Walk into that room and make your way to the third statue (the only one you can move). Pull that statue all the way out and then push the statue all the way to the end onto the tile that you just revealed.
Now the door out just locked but another one unlocked. Go through the door you just unlocked and open the white chest beyond. Go back into the room with the three statues and there's a tile for you to stand on where the third statue originally was. Stand on this tile, then head back to the room with the chest and out through the door that was just unlocked. You are now back in the room with the three doors so go through the door you originally went through. This time you will open the wall and then walk along the other path that originally had the lightning trap and so you won't close the wall.
Go through the false wall and into the room with the headstone. Look inside the coffin against the wall and then mourn at the headstone to open another false wall. Then read the note on the wall which will reveal a hole in the floor. Investigate the hole and then go through the wall. Down the stairs, loot the chest, then up the stairs and loot the next one. Go up the last stairs to exit the tomb.
The Curator's Final Exhibit
NOTE: You actually get this when you read the plaque in the basement of the museum by the headstone.
It seems the unfortunate former curator met his demise inside the sarcophagus of his own exhibit. Place his remains inside his family chest located in the cemetery in Champs Les Sims for the curator to finally have peace.
Head on over to the cemetery in Champs Les Sims. There will be a tomb icon to lead you there. Head to the back of the cemetery with the rows of rooms. At the very back between the rooms you'll see a hole in the ground. Inspect it to open one of the doors. Go into the room and take the keystone out of the chest. Then open the chest again and click and drag the curator's remains into the chest.
Success with the Haunting
The haunting is at an end. Gustave Delven will surely be placed at ease if Sim tells the entire story.
Just "explain everything" to the curator.
