Welcome to The National Neopian Museum, where the old is new and the new gets old and then new again.
Here at the Neopian Museum we take pride in providing the most comprehensive and up to date historical information in Neopia. If you should find some information that is missing from the guide please do not hesitate to contact the museum curator, Heaven_666, and she will happily add it for you.
You may have noticed that the museum has a new format, hopefully this will make it faster loading and easier to navigate than the old one. To explore the museum use the navigation links that always appear above the content, they will allow you to instantly toggle between sections instead of scrolling.
If there are any major problems with the page you can try viewing the old version here.
The Museums layout has been updated, again. I shall call it Neopian Museum 2.0. ; ) Hope you like it!
There are, quite possibly, a few quirks and kinks to be worked out but I wanted to get this up for the weekend. There's also some new content, but due to my inbox being cleared there are a few requests I can't put up. D : So sorry! If this is you mail me again, I haven't forgotten, just your name. Ooops.
- Linkage - If you have a site that should be linked to let me know. ( :
Stone and Glass Neopets
Stone and glass were both paint brushes that could be used on pets. These images show the effect of using one.
Both colours were eventually retired
The Glass on 7th January 2002 after a user poll suggested it was boring and the Stone on the 26th of June for pretty much the same reason.
On these dates the pets that were painted Glass became Tyrannian and the pets that were painted Stone became Island.
You can no longer use the stone or glass paint brushes to paint your pets.
If you love the colour glass have a look at the new 'ice' colour availiable.
It's lab ray only so you'll have to get lucky.
Those poor Neopets. ): Pretty though. : D
A long time ago there was a unicorn Paint brush that looked just like this.
It wasn't around for that long but for a while at least you could paint your pets to look like pretty unicorns.
When the colour was retired the unicorn paint brush became the unicorn Gem and all of the unicorn pets were changed to basic red.
Many of the older neopets have undergone significant changes in design from the time they were first created, I term this neovolution. ^_~
The Shoyru and the Zafara are both based on the contest results and competitions where users sent in designs for a new neopet species.
Others were just plain odd looking and were changed so that they fitted better with the direction the site was heading.
Just in case you needed more proof that neovolution happens, TNT went and changed ALL the neopets. Yep. ;) All of em.
Have a look at Shieboo or Jauzlin's petpages for a list of old and new designs and visit Daurn's page to see the difference between male and female pets (they have eyelashes ^^).
Jub Jub (formerly JibJib)
Bruce (formerly Bruce Forsyth)
Who is that? It's a photograph and caricature of Bruce Forsyth the English showman and entertainer. :D
The bruce was redrawn in its final form to celebrate the opening of Terror Mountain on November 16, 2000.
Kau (formerly Macy Gray, yes, seriously.)This was a copyright one, duh.
Eyrie (formerly Cerpull and Tatsu) - Poll here
Jetsam - When Jetsams were updated the new design was chosen in this poll
Kacheek (formerly Badeek)
Buzz (formerly known as Flye. Fl- eye. get it? hahahahahahaha)
Gelert (formerly Polypup)
I think the Gelert had a rather nice redraw. The pose was chosen by users, you can see the poll here here and the news here
Number 3 actually won and by a large margin so TNT came up with a compromise between 5 and 2.
Mynci (formerly Mellish)
The present Mynci look was also selected by a poll Personally I think number 6 should have won.
Kyrii (formerly Fuzio)
The Kyrii was changed for copyright reasons. The new design was selected from a user poll, see the news here.
Quiggle (formerly Frogstomp)
Acara (formerly Tigren)
The Cybunny was updated on 26th June 2003 but not without TNT having their fun, see the news.
Grundos were released in large numbers when users were encouraged to adopt them in order to save them from the evil Dr sloth.
This was the user contribution to the Virtupets plot as this was before the battledome was built.
Chombies were created to coincide with the discovery of Tyrannia on March 22nd 2001.
Neopets 2.0 Tweaks
Little changes made to the customisable pets shortly after their release. Presumably because of feedback from users and to fix glitches. (large images are from beta testing phase)
[ BACK TO TOP ]
Just as basic pets have been updated (see neovolution) so are painted ones. This has to happen when the pet design is changed, of course, but colours also become outdated and can be given their own revamp.
This process has been going on for millenia (or like 8 years) so in that time there has been a substantial number of changes, too many to include on this page in fact. That's why I created the Painted pet Emporium but keep a limited selection here so those with dialup don't miss out on all the fun.
This is only a taste, please visit the Painted pet Emporium for the full list.

Who can imagine Neopia without it's usually benevolent, sometimes malevolent, benefactors, the faeries? I think they look much nicer with faces. :)
[ BACK TO TOP ]
This is only a small selection of items that have been updated over the years, the real number is huge. I mean this to give an insight into the general trends in the drawing ect. which TNT has followed.
Yellow Acara plushie
Orange Flurby became Orange Fuzzle
Wormy the Worm became Springy Toy
The Good, the Kacheek, the Ugly became Book of Pain
Beautiful Golden Ring
Sky Blue Eyeshadow
Halloween Paint Brush - this is what the paint brushes used to look like.
Invisible Paint Brush
Unicorn Paint Brush became Uni Gem
Yellow Frost Cannon. (don't eat the yellow frost)
Milk Chocolate Wocky
White Chocolate Uni
Ferrero Rocher became Neo Truffle
Rose Wine became Sparkling Grape Juice
White Wine became Sparkling Apple Juice
Red Wine became Sparkling Raspberry Juice
Chocolate Orange Easter Negg
Videos were availiable from the video store as seen in the earlier shop map and the shop keeper was a yellow lenny holding up a VHS tape. Although not actually watchable pets could be made happy by using videos, making them like a kind of toy.
Videos were retired from the site on the 7 December, 2001. The Video Store was closed down and the videos changed into what are now, quite rare books.
These items used to be sold in the Haunted woods Apothecary but became retired when it closed down.
For a full list of mushrooms see this page.
This shroom will heal your Neopet from any disease.
This shroom will heal your Neopet by 4 hitpoints.
This shroom will raise your Neopets health by one hitpoint.
|Super Fast Shroom
This shroom will give your Neopet 1 more movement point.

[ BACK TO TOP ]
This section is divided into three main areas. Maraquan, Spooky and regular petpets.
Maraquan and Spooky petpets were given updates by TNT because they were either unpopular or dodgy looking, this change however only affected petpets that were unattatched at the time.
So although very rare you can still see versions of these petpets about, Cyansam has a list of them.
The rest of the petpets were updated like Neopets are, by saving over the existing art, so the old versions are offically extinct.
As a note of interest the original Maraqan petpets in the fish bowls were sold from the petpet shop in old Maraqua.
The new versions received their updates some time during their exodus from the ruins of Maraqua to the rock pool in Mystery Island.
Sugar rush (♥)
Other Revamped pets

Explore maps can change overnight, it's strangely nostalgic to be able to look back on them and see how they've changed.

Click the images to view the current Map -
Explore Map I
The Explore map II circa 2000.
Explore Map III

The original Shops map - The Shops, bazaar, Plaza and Market place were all the same map.
The first Market Place
The first Neopian shops map. Clothes finally do something lol!
The old Maraquan explore map. Before it was rebuilt
Raging Whirlpool. This is how Maraqua appeared for a while after it was destroyed.
The original Virtupets Space Station

Site Areas Never Released
In 2003 TNT prepared to release 'neoschool,' a new site area which was related to the intelligence level of neopets, possibly allowing you to raise it. It's release however was postponed indefinitely as explained in editorial no. 164. Neoschools current status is unknown, all we have to go by is this response in editorial no. 231.
All that remains of neoschool is this page and the Back to School shop where you can buy school supplies. (these don't do anything at the moment)
The 'other' Krawk Island
Scurvy Island was a new world timed to be released after the Curse of Maraqua plot, you can see the comic it was featured in here. It was eventually abandoned however due to the pirate niche being already filled by Krawk Island.
Ed 178 - Scurvy Island is explained
Ed 180 - Scurvy Island dropped.
NB: The rumour mill says that many of the ideas for Scurvy Island where recycled in the latest plot, 'Journey to the lost Isle'. There is a certain resemblance.
Talador was the original name of Altador but was changed prior to the release of this new world in 2006, due to legal reasons.
The original references to Talador are still viewable. On a historical note, these TCG's along with the mysterious statue in the Maraquan Ruins are the reason Neopians were alerted to the world in the first place.
In the PS2 game, Neopets:The Darkest Faerie , the world is still named Talador.
Bogshot villiage is featured as a world in Neopets:The Darkest Faerie and was confirmed as a mini world in the Neopets Magazine.
Wikipedia was replaced by Neovia, before its release on the site, due to Sophie the swamp witch's residence there.
The original Bogshot was located north of Brightvale and included shops such as :
and Brendel & Sons Bridge Repair Service.
The return of Dr Sloth
The Return of Dr sloth was a plot planned to be released sometime in Y6(2004). The plot revolved around neopias moon kruledor and was to explain the purpose of the Kreludan Mining Corp. there. The Return of Sloth was much hyped with several hints given out prior to its official announcement on the 2nd April 2004. Unfortunately after being delayed several times the plot was cancelled, with an explanation and apology from TNT.
Here is a list of News articles and sources related to the plot. These are all we have to remember it. *sniff*
5th May - Kruledor is discovered and given its own special day.
13th May Another mention of the Space station, for no reason lol.
21st May - Grundo, a new band begins playing at the Concert Hall.
24th May The return of Dr. Sloth TCG Tournament.
25th May - Kreludan Mining Corp.- The game released.
7th July - TNT mentions delays but the plot is still scheduled to go ahead.
19th July - More space station themed stuff is released.
29th July - TNT breaks the bad news.

Quiguki Armageddon - In yr 6 TNT claimed A Quiguki expansion set
was about to released based on a new world called Quigara. Both the set and world failed to show.

2006 (yr 8)
Neocharge - I'm sure this scared many people, see the news for the big reveal.
2007 (yr 9)
TNT claims the entire battledome is being permanently closed. This includes shops selling weapons, Hidden Tower, Defenders of Neopia, battledome scores and the Battledome chat.
Borovan Day Pranks
Yr 8. The Advent calender mysteriously didn't give out any gifts on this day, leaving neopians with only a tantalising animation of a seasonal attack pea and crushed hopes of an avatar. The next day double prizes were awarded to those who visited, you can see them in my screenies.
Yr 6. All pets became asparagus chias for the duration of Dec 20th.
Dec 21st was the day a lot of people were suprised at what their pet they got from the pound looks like.
30th June 2000 (yr 2) - A list of Bad Pets was released, supposedly a list of pets that didn't quite make it as neopets.
22nd July 2006 (yr 8) - The day the artists went on vacation.
Aug 25th - Mutant Day. All pets are turned into mutants for the day.
[ BACK TO TOP ]
This section of the museum is all about remembering the little changes that come and go but collectively change the way in which neo is played.
- Way back when, you needed a Tombola Coin to use the Tombola.
- When Mystery Island was first released you also needed payment to access it, this was in the form of totems. Three totems bought you one boat trip to the Isle.
Ice totems bought you access to the ice caves.
And Faerie Totems access to Faerieland
- Theme parks were accessible through the Games Cupboard. Neopets could pay neopoints to go on rides there.
When the Theme Parks were closed down the users with the best parks were awarded a trophy for all their hard work.
- When they were first released there was no limit to the number of faerie quests you could do! This is evidenced by the news on the faerie quests page.
The Main shops contained Live chat rooms where you could talk with other people while waiting for restock.
- You could at one time see a different shop wizard depending what world you click from. (news)
this is the Island wizard
- When Draiks were first released on 25th June 02, a limited number could be created through create a pet, the Draik's nest wasn't released until next September.
- Moehogs used to be limited edition and could be created by signing up with a sponsor, from June 17, 2000.
On August 29, 2000 the news says that a new colony of Moehogs has been discovered and they are now adoptable by everyone.
Neocircles were like webrings, a whole bunch of shops or petpages could be linked together in a 'circle,' where each page linked on to the next. This feature was cancelled eventually due to bugs in the system and a large mumber of circles linking off site. The new guilds system took over where neocircles left off, allowing people with similar interests an easier way to chat and interact.
You will still see the odd neocircle around, on petpages or shops. Like this example.
Discount Cards gave you a percentage discount when buying from the main shops and could be obtained by referring people to neopets, the more referrals the greater the discount. People who earned these cards in the past can still use them but to the best of my knowledge they are now retired. Too bad eh?
The Rainbow Fountain originally required a Fountain Pass to work, which you got by signing up with Neopets sponsors!
The fountain could change your pets gender, species AND colour.
- Lab maps used to be less than 1K each! Whoa inflation eh.
- People! Occasionally human figures have crept onto the site. Characters as varied as the Island Mystic, Edna the Zafara, the Toy Shop shopkeeper and Dr Death as well as the Mynci, Bruce and Kau all used to be human.
I can see you behind that mask! :D
didn't exist. You could buy items from shops with just one click, ah bliss. ( :
The old layout. It remained practically the same for 8 years. R.I.P
