Animal Crossing: New Horizons International Museum Day stamps

You can fill out a stamp card by obtaining and then donating certain insects, fish, and fossils found throughout New Horizons during the International Museum Day Animal Crossing celebrations. You’ll seemingly need to visit new stamping stations placed in the museum in order to claim any stamps you’ve earned as part of Blathers’ Stamp Rally.

As you can see in the above screenshot, collecting stamps earns rewards, so it’ll definitely be worth devoting the necessary time to do so.
