Missing Curators is a secret side mission in The Division 2, and it can be unlocked in the East Mall area. The Division 2 Missing Curators secret mission has you exploring a museum in the area, rescuing people from the True Sons. And, since it’s a museum, you can also find one artwork artifact and one relic artifact collectible during the mission. All that said, here’s our Division 2 Missing Curators Secret Side Mission Location – Artifact Collectibles guide will show you how to unlock the secret mission in the East Mall museum, and where to find two artifact collectibles once you’re there.
How to Unlock Missing Curators Side Mission in Division 2?
To unlock the Missing Curators secret side mission in The Division 2, you’ll have to look for a specific NPC, Olivia Vance, in the East Mall area. The easiest way to reach Olivia Vance and start the secret side mission is to start from the Choke Control Point. Head north and cross Independence Ave SW, towards the building with three domes. Then, head left, towards the ramp. Head down into the underground entrance (Manning Institution written above). Walk through the blue-lit doorway, then down the stairs and into the next room. This is where you’ll find Olivia Vance. Talk to her, and you’ll unlock the Missing Curators secret side mission.
Now, you have to go into the museum, which is all the way in the northeast corner of the East Mall area. The easiest way to reach the museum is to go to the Solar Farm Control Point, and head north from there. The museum has two doors, in the north and in the east. If the east door doesn’t let you in, then just try the north one.
Artwork & Relic Artifact Collectibles – Where to Find?
To find the one Relic artifact and one Artwork artifact in The Division 2, you have to search the museum with a very fine-tooth comb. I recommend that you first find the hostages, and kill all the True Sons that keep attacking, in order to search in peace. The relic, called Old Glory Flag, is in the large room where you rescue Deon Bailey. It’s the room with a huge golden statue in the middle, and with huge American flags everywhere. Search the north niche of the room, and you’ll find the relic leaning against the wall on the right.
From the Old Glory Flag, go through the door on the right just next to it. Go down the stairs, and go into the room on the left, through the open door. Look in the far left corner. You’ll find the Fall of Phaeton artwork artifact collectible next to two large, wooden crates stacked atop each other.
By the way, if you’ve missed the two artifacts that you can collect during the Missing Curators mission, worry not. The doors to the museum remain open after you exit the mission. So, you can simply go back and find them.
