Wixon's Shovel Museum is a location in Nuka-World in 2287.

Layout

The museum consists of two floors. On the first floor, there are several display cases with various items, mostly shovels, in them. Next to some of the display cases, there are plaques that have descriptions of the shovels. In the gift shop section, on the floor behind cash register there is Advanced-locked safe.

On the second floor, there are a few desks with broken terminals. One of the terminals is functional and has some corrupted files along with a letter of resignation. Settlers and scavengers make this location their home, and are at times attacked by members of the Pack.
