Notice board (Museum Camp)

From Old School RuneScape Wiki
Jump to: navigation, search

The notice board is a notice board which displays tasks players may do on Fossil Island. Different sets of tasks will grant different rewards from Peter, who can be found panning just west of the Museum Camp. Each set of tasks will reward 5 unidentified fossils of the same type, which means doing these tasks will provide an oppurtunity to fill one Paleontology exhibit in the Varrock Museum.
