Ikariam Museum Guide



Ikariam Museum Guide by Lairya

What are the features of a Museum? A Museum brings you additional contentment in the town, i.e. a higher growth rate.
To know how much happiness each level brings, you can check it under the first steps-> building-> Museum. You find this at the “First steps”.

At the museum your citizens are able to see how other nations try to copy our excellent culture. In order to host larger exhibitions you should upgrade your museum. Every expansion of your museum allows you to display a further culture good.

What do I need to build a museum?

You need the research cultural exchange (science). To be able to investigate cultural exchange, you need:

Science: Well Digging -> Paper-> Espionage-> Invention-> Ink-> Cultural Exchange.
Economy: Conservation-> Pulley-> Wealth-> Wine Press-> Culinary Specialities.
Seafaring: Deck Weapons-> Ship Maintenance-> Expansion
Military: Dry dock-> Maps-> Professional Army

Then the option of the Museum is available to you in each of your towns
(Costs: 481 wood and 240 Marble, Build Time Length: 1h 36 minutes).

How do I get cultural treaties?

To receive a cultural treaty, you must make a cultural treaty agreement with another player. In order to be able to do this the other player must have the cultural exchange research as well.

  1. Proceed as if you wanted to write the player a message
  2. Above the input field where your text goes is a drop Down menu
  3. Select “Request Cultural Goods” then click submit.

If you want to pull back your offer because the player has not reacted or you had considered to withdraw the treaty, the process is exactly like with the offering request, just that you now select “Cancel Cultural Goods Treaty”.

If the player has accepted your offer, you will receive one cultural treaty. Click on your museum and then select “Redistribute Cultural Treaties”. You can have 1 cultural treaty per museum level.

IMPORTANT!: Note that you must distribute *Every* cultural treaty, so that the distribution is accepted – this is not a bug.

You must pay attention to how many agreements you have at each stage of development in your museums. If you want to discontinue an agreement because you want to attack someone (see below for consequences) then go to your museum and click the cross next to that treaty. Of course your agreement partners can likewise simply discontinue the agreement – but don’t worry, you will receive news if this happens! A cultural agreement costs no diplomacy points and it has no regional restriction (you can have an agreement with any player in your whole world). You cannot cancel a treaty for 3 days after it has been accepted however if it has yet to be accepted then you may withdraw the option. This is done in the same way as sending the offer except you use “withdraw cultural treaty offer”.

What happens if I attack someone I have a treaty with?

This would be a very bad move!! If you do then the happiness in your town will drop considerably, this is only temporary however.

I don’t have enough cultural treaties, how do i get more?

The best way of going about this is to post in the request threads for each world. These are linked below:
