The ‘Myths and Legends’ room is one of the museum’s exhibits room .
The Myths and Legends room is an exhibit room devoted to the creatures and beings of fokelore that can not be simply classified as animals. It actually consists of three display rooms, each one holding displays of creatures ranging on how essential they were in respect to their folklore being closer to the Gods and Religious Items room.
Various displays in the rooms represent the various creatures of various folklores. In the first room, there is a music box that tells one of the stories of Anansi the Spider, a wax statue of Apophis, the entity of Chaos in Egyptian Mythology, and a sarcophagus to signify myths that attempt to explain the afterlife. In the next room, there are depictions of mythic creatures, such as the Cyclops, the Pegasus, and a Dragon overhead. In the last room, there is a sculpture of a Werewolf, and murals of Vampires, and their ‘relationship‘ with lycanthropes.
There are two exits to the Myths and Legends room. The first one is the doorway back to the Gods and Religious Items room, a door that can only be unlocked on the other side of the door. The second one is an average, everyday door, which is open to a small hallway. This hallway is short, and has the door to the Janitor's closet at one end, and the stairs to the Planetarium.
There are four known hiding spots located in the Myths and Legends room. Two of the hiding spots are for Ixupi, and the other two are hiding spots for the vessels.
The two known hiding spots for the Ixupi in the room are on opposite ends of the spectrum. The first is a subtle item, which under normal circumstances, would not even be in the room. That is the wooden planks from one of the crates that had been used to deliver exhibits. It is a perfect hiding spot for the Wood ixupi to hide in.
The second hiding spot is rather poetic. It is the Wax Statue of Apophis, the Egyptian diety of chaos. Given the nature of the Ixupi, this is one reason the statue is an appropriate hiding spot for the Wax Ixupi. The second reason is the fact that the Ixupi are the children of the Mayan Snake God. It could have been that the Ixupi felt drawn to the statue since it is the figure of a snake.
There are two hiding spots in the room for Vessels. The first is the African Creation Myth exhibit. Revealing the vessel requires solving the puzzle linked to this exhibit. The second hiding spot is another exhibit in the room, which is the Maori Carved Chest, or the sarcophagus in the back of the room. Be warned, as there is a skeleton in it, waiting to fall out when it is opened.
This is a room that has two puzzles in it, but the majority of their workings is outside the room.
The first is the African Creation Myth display puzzle. This device is tied in with the Jukebox found up in the Clock Tower. By selecting the right music there, which is the one featuring the name of the figure in some of the most well known African Legends, Anansi the spider, the display will work, and open up, exposing the hiding spot.
The second puzzle is one of the six skull Dials. This room houses the dial that is next to the Myth of the Werewolf display. This would be the last of the dials that a normal tourist would encounter, if they remained on the main display route.
As for things being amiss in this room, other than wood planks, and some exhibits not being fully uncrated, the only thing amiss is a small drawstring sack. It belongs to Merrick Campbell, and inside it contains a book on Ancient Astronomy, signed by the author, and bookmarked to a part contributed by Hubert Windlenot, and four photographs. Each photograph is either of him, or Beth, and shows four rooms they had been to in the museum. The locations in the four pictures are the Fortune Teller’s Room, the Tomb of the Ixupi display, the Workshop by Windlenot’s Office, and the entrance to the Gods and Religious Items room.
