Visit the Museum in Dawnstar is a quest available in The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim. This quest serves as a miscellaneous prelude to the quest Pieces of the Past in which the Dragonborn must recover the scattered pieces of Mehrunes' Razor.


  1. Visit the Museum in Dawnstar


Once the Dragonborn has reached level 20, a courier will deliver a note inviting them to travel to Dawnstar to see the new museum. Silus Vesuius is waiting outside. Upon approach, he and Dawnstar's court wizard, Madena, are arguing.

Madena: "Your ancestors wouldn't want this, Silus!"
Silus: "Why should I hide from it? This is my family's legacy!"
Madena: "It's the past! Dead oaths on dead lips. Let it stay there."
Silus: "The museum is opening, Madena."

After the heated conversation ends, he then invites the Dragonborn to come inside and talk further about the Daedric Cult, the Mythic Dawn. Once inside, Vesuius gives a short tour of several display cases and the option opens up for the quest "Pieces of the Past", in which the pieces of Mehrunes' Razor must be collected.
