The Lilycove Museum (Japanese: ミナモびじゅつかん Minamo Art Gallery) is an art museum in Lilycove City. The museum features a collection of fantastic artwork featuring Pokémon and Contests. Most of the first floor is comprised of classical statues and sculptures featuring or symbolizing Pokémon, while the second floor is comprised of modern and vibrant artworks of Pokémon springing forth into life. Unlike the museum of Slateport City, the player is not charged a fee upon entrance.

First floor

The first floor, or the ground floor as it is known, is the main exhibition floor of the museum; there are many statues here, including a few that are replicas of real statues, as well as a few paintings. Many people wander around this floor for inspiration or to just marvel at the fantastic pieces of artwork. It is this hall that features the classical artwork of Pokémon, and the symbolization of Pokémon, while most artwork originated during the ancient times.

On entry to the Lilycove Museum, the information desk can be located on the western side. Here the receptionist will explain that the first floor features a collection of fantastic artworks. By traveling further west to the south western hall, and woman and her child can be found marveling over a piece of artwork that includes a painting of a beautiful, smiling woman with a Pokémon on her lap. Also in this hall, is a painting of grass Pokémon swaying in the breeze, enjoying the wind's gentle caress.

By traveling along east, the eastern hall can be found hosting several Pokémon statues. An artist can be found searching for inspiration from the artworks in the museum, while another student can be found north of him, expressing his love for the fine arts. Featuring in this hall, is a huge stone tablet inscribed with Pokémon and a dense text in the small characters of an ancient, unreadable language, possibly Unown handwriting, as well as a replica of a famous sculpture that looks like an ancient bird Pokémon, resembling Pidgeot, while next to it, is a large Poké Ball carved from a black stone, apparently used in festivals in the olden days. There is also a painting located on the northern wall that displays a legendary Pokémon, painted from the artist's imagination. The stairs to the second floor are also located in this hallway; however, they are blocked by the curator before the player is willing to help him complete the second floors painting collection.

The northwestern hall hosts many painting of Pokémon-related goods. The painting on the far east displays an odd landscape with a bizarre and fantastic scenery, while just east of it, is a delicious-looking painting of Berries, while, the two other painting just east of it displays a very old painting that has its canvas peeled here and there.

In Pokémon Omega Ruby and Alpha Sapphire, a Kindler will sell some of his art—Secret Base decorations—to the player for PokémonDollar.png100,000 each.

Second floor


The curator will introduce the second floor to the player as the "special exhibit hall" and tell the player about his future plans for the design. The second floor, as the curator explains, was made for modern and vibrant artwork that features Pokémon springing forth into glorious life, a great change from the first floor which displays classical paintings, and the curator asks the player to search for suitable artwork.

At first, there is nothing on this floor. However, if the player wins a Master Rank Pokémon Contest with at least 800 points, an artist will approach the player saying he's done a painting that might even look good in a museum, at which point the player will direct him to the Lilycove Museum. If the player accrues five paintings, one for each Contest category, the curator will give the player a Glass Ornament for their Secret Base.
