A famous museum is located in the northwestern part of town. The main building is open to the public for  50 and features several historical artifacts, including Aerodactyl and Kabutops fossils, and a model of a space shuttle. (The space shuttle was originally the Space Shuttle Columbia in the Generation I games, but after its explosion in 2003, it simply was called a space shuttle.) The second, smaller building is not accessible by the public, but if the player Cuts through and talks to the scientists there, Old Amber can be obtained and used to resurrect an Aerodactyl on Cinnabar Island.

The museum is closed for renovations in Pokémon Gold, Silver and Crystal.
