Torasa is willing pay one-half of an item's value, but cannot exceed 30,000 gold for those worth 60,000 or more. There are thirty-four items that can be sold to the museum, for a total of 693,750 gold. Items can also be donated rather than sold; a minimum of two donations is required to complete "The Blade of Nerevar" quest.
The Nerevarine can refer to the nearby copy of Tamrielic Lore for hints as to the type of items that the museum may purchase. However, it is a poor guide to be used for this purpose. Many of the items listed in the book cannot be sold to the museum, and conversely, many of the items that can be sold are not listed in the book. Speak with Torasa to be informed of the items the museum is interested in, or refer to the list below.
The following is a list of the items that can be sold to the Museum of Artifacts, along with the purchase price and notes concerning their location or acquisition. Some of are actually unique items and not genuine artifacts.
The Museum is privately funded, and is an effort to collect and display many of the artifacts from this part of the world. Should you want to sell something you feel the Museum will be interested in, bring the item here and we can assess its value. Be warned, however, that theft is a serious matter, and likely to equal a death warrant for any foolish enough to attempt it.
The Mournhold Museum is delighted with my gifts of famous tamrielic artifacts.
