The ‘Museum Courtyard’ is part of Windlenot's Museum of the Strange and Unusual.
DescriptionEditThe Courtyard of the Museum is the first area of the museum encountered. It is a vast courtyard, which could possibly be a free part of the museum experience. It is basically the whole outside area, with a few odd sculptures on the grounds, a bench to sit down on, a gazebo one could use to view a replica of Stonehenge. There is a vast stairway leading up to the entrance of the museum. At the base of the stairwell is a sign for the museum.
Various items around the courtyard display some maze-like symbols.
EntrancesEditThere are two locations that would act as entrances to the museum. The first being the door at the top of the stairway. This would be the true entrance, but remains locked until the museum is ready to open, or after the last Ixupi is captured. The second is a hidden entrance that is under the Stonehenge replica. This particular entrance is used primarily by Professor Windlenot for privacy. Since the place is also his residence, this is understandable.
There is a gate that is the entrance to the ground, which remains open at all times, unless it is locked by teens for legend tripping, daring another person to spend the night on the museum ground. Due to the rumors that began in 1980, this became an alternate location for dares, as other legend trippings in the area are usually spending the night in the local cemetery.
PuzzlesEditThere is only one puzzle located on the museum grounds, and that discovering The secret entrance of the museum. This is done in two steps: Raising the bridge to the Stonehenge replica. The second part is setting the symbols on the floor of the Stonehenge replica. Doing both of these steps leads to revealing the secret entrance to the museum.
Given the years that the place has been abandoned, it is understandable that the walls, and sign, have been vandalized with graffiti. A letter from Joseph Whitney left in the letter box provides a hint that something is off. This letter, sent in September 1984 from London, would hint that it has remained in the mailbox for over 11 years. It seems that the mailbox protected the letter from the elements over all this time. The fact that the letter was sent there is also a sign that no one knew the whereabouts of Hubert Windlenot for over 15 years.
