Museum guards guard the Varrock Museum and the Workman's Gate due east of the east entrance to Varrock. Unlike most guards, they cannot be attacked by players.
Recently, the Museum received a massive donation from the government of Varrock. With this money they renovated the museum, obtaining new exhibits, building new floors, recruiting new workers and archaeologists, and increasing advertising. The museum guards are amongst the museum's new workers.
The museum guards have been hired to peacefully manage and inform visitors to the museum. They guard four areas; the entrance to the archaeological cleaning centre in the museum, the museum's back entrance and the workman's gate near the Digsite. Players can gain permission to pass through the first two by working in the museum. The side entrance to the Digsite used to be impassable, but now the museum guards let players through after the completion of the Bone Voyage quest and the player has 153 kudos.
