Bentley to Sly during their Museum break-in[src]

The Museum of Natural History is a museum located in Cairo, Egypt, and the place where Sly and the gang attempt to steal the Clockwerk parts from in the episode, A Shadow from the Past, and the first mission in Sly 2: Band of Thieves, "Cairo Museum Break-In."

The museum is responsible for the attempted reconstruction of Clockwerk through the "Clockwerk Reconstruction Project."[1]



The museum is very large, spanning multiple city blocks. It contains many buildings and a courtyard. There is also a basement, though it is unknown if this basement is accessible to visitors, or is just for servicing.


The museum contains artifacts from all over the world, including (at one time) the whole body of Clockwerk, paintings of the Fiendish Five, concept art for the first game, and other things like a whale skeleton and palm trees.


The Museum is guarded by a security force made up of pigs. These guards are never fought in the game, and cannot be reached (except by a glitch).
