The Metrobay Museum was founded at the turn of the 20th century by noted eccentric Woodrow Strangecraft. Woodrow himself donated several rare and exotic items to the museum upon its founding, and his untimely death result in several extremely rare objects winding up on display for visitors to admire. The museum has since grown in size to become a landmark of Metrobay history and achievement. It houses a vast collection of rare art, historical artifacts, and archaic but foundational technology achievements, rivaling the size of the largest museums in the world.
Because of its prestige and highly valuable contents, the museum is often a prime target for thieves and burglars eager to make a quick dollar off of some rare painting or recovered sunken ship treasure. Many items have been stolen with little hope of being recovered, including the mystical Magic Wand, the urban legend-inspiring Black Hat, the Cloak of the Nightengale, and several others.
Other noted items in the museum include the costumes of founding members of the Superheroine Squad, technological inventions by Baron Von Ick, recovered treasure believed to be of Atlantean origin, and a wide variety of extremely high quality erotic artwork donated by Max Indeks and other members of the Circle of R.O.P.E.
