Decentraland Spotlight Series: #8 Museum

The Museum district was one of the first districts to create a space which really stands out in Decentraland. It has been designed in a way which is smart, slick and easy to navigate, putting exhibiting artists at the core of its layout. As crypto art has experienced a surge of activity and interest of late, this district is perfectly placed to become a welcoming home to this creative side of the NFT community. Learn more below…
