Museum of Habbo
The main room and entrance for the Museum is the Museum Lobby. This operates as a welcome room and often as an advice or help centre. Staff of the museum often host Q&A sessions in the vestibule by the door, where discussions of Habbo History are often held. The lobby room has undergone significant moves and versions over the years. The current room is a large, step-leveled type, with a long corridor leading to the museums hallway, exhibiting a number of classic and exchange rares along the way.
The project's inception came from inspiration in an ex hotel managers room. Jibbi owned a series of rooms, leading on from a central hallway, that showcased all manner of catalogue furniture on the hotel, as early as 2006. Other Habbo users too already owned well-known museums around this time, and before 2010, namely Powzaa and Sierk - those these were outdated by the time Habbo had moved to flash and the merge had been completed.
Attached saw the opportunity for an up-to-date museum, and began assimilating his already wide collection of furniture into the project. With early input and room donations from long-time Habbo players from the 2002 era, Toby and Barry - the project began to stock-list as much furniture as possible. Then came notable donations from Liver-Oil in promotional items and branded badges, prompting a wing of the museum to be named after them.
In March of 2012, amidst increasing awareness of the museum, the room was liked by Habbo staff, gaining it crucial exposure in the relevant room subsection. In 2013, the Museum has grown at a steady pace. It began by expanding its Monster Plant collection along with the renewed spring campaign of Habbo, as well as finalising the Trax collection to complete all 72 disks (part of 'Functionality Habbo').Habbo Palooza, a space was rented out for the Museum and a promotional sign was created, boosting visitor numbers briefly (this sign now serves as a welcoming sign in the Museum Lobby). Into the summer, more contributors began to donate super rare and rare items to fill in the museums' gaps. Around this time, the museum first saw exposure on the Habbox Forum.
As well as collecting furniture ranges (seasonals, promotional, themed, re-coloured, branded etc) - the museum also diversifies into badge collections, such as all the badges attained with HC membership, and those for past Habbo Helpers campaigns or Hobbas. It also showcases similar rooms, collections or recreations of popular rooms on the hotel, as well as recreating hotel views or features of previous versions, including the default clothing for new users.
