There are dozens of different types of fossils in the game, so you might find our checklist handy. This guide lists all the fossils you need to complete the Museum in Animal Crossing New Horizons.

Each day your fossils will respawn and you can dig them up. You can then give them to Blathers to assess, and you will randomly receive 1 out of 73 possible different fossils. As you can imagine, it takes a while to unlock them all, but you can always trade with other people for fossils you don’t have. You can dig up 4 fossils per island every day.

We have a checklist below that you can reference to see which fossils you are missing from your collection. Feel free to bookmark this page and come back to look at it whenever you need to compare.
