Squidsonian Institute

Updated on July 29, 2014

Welcome to the Squidsonian Institute

Situated amongst the populace of downtown Squidville, the Squidsonian houses a vast complex of museums and galleries. They feature the works of prominent Squid Artists, and showcase valuable relics and discoveries from ancient times. It's always interesting and educational, plus you never know what you may find on exhibit here!

Be sure to pick up your lifetime membership card on the way out. This way you can return to see the new exhibits as they arrive!

Get in for free!

We think it's worth the price...

Looks like you're in luck, as they have free admission today! Just follow the arrows into the museum, and your educational experience will begin right away.

The tour starts here.

The next group is ready to begin the tour, so step right up and follow along. Your guide will be sure you see the highlights...and perhaps some of the low ones too!


Once upon a time, these parts were occupied by Cavesquid (Homus Squipiens). Here, a large wall mural depicts the clubbing lifestyle in prehistoric ages.

Famous Sculptures

The Squidsonian is proud to be home to Squidville's most famous works of art and sculptures. Amongst other treasures, is the world famous Venus de Squidoo!

Artifacts of yore.

Squarcheologists (old Hippie Squids that just dig Squidville!) have uncovered a variety of artifacts showing a rich history. It is widely believed that Squidville's ancestors emigrated from Newbie Scotia.

The Infamous Sqope Diamond

One of the most popular displays at the Squidsonian, is the Notorious Sqope Diamond. While all of the women yearn to own it, The Sqope Diamond does come with a curse....Mr Sqope!

The Squidasaurus

Uncovered recently were remains of the ferocious and mighty Squidasaurus that once roamed the hallowed grounds of Squidville

A stellar display

The Squidsonian is proud to offer a Planetarium where inquisitive squids can study the galaxy...particularly in search of the elusive "Purple Star".

The Squidsonian Squeek Squad

The Squidsonian is fully staffed with some of the brightest minds available. The Squeeks are always on hand to keep track of technological and scientific advances.

Artwork of the Famous!

The Squidsonian boasts having an enormous collection of the world's greatest art. Featured throughout the gallery is some of the finest original inks on canvas!

Perhaps one of the more popular works of art is the infamous "Still Life" by famed artist Squidcent Van Gogh.

One giant step for squid....

and a disappointing leap for squidkind!

The end of an era has come to Squidville with the recent closing of NASA (National Aeronautical Squid Association) leaving a sad feeling for many Squidizens. The Squidsonian is pleased though to be able to put on display, the last shuttle to go into space....Squidlantis.

Thanks for coming!

On your way out, be sure to stop and apply for a lifetime membership to The Squidsonian Institute. It will entitle you to return at any time for free admittance to see new exhibits. The staff and management hopes you enjoyed the tour, and if you did they would appreciate a "thumbs up" on their evaluation card. Don't forget to sign the guestbook and let us know you were here!
