The Cursed Museum is a case featured in Criminal Case: Pheadmouth. It is the tenth case in the city of Pheadmouth and the fourth one take place in the Italian Street district.


Wanting to have a look at the most popular museum of Pheadmouth - Riccard Museum, and investigate further into Santorini family as the museum's owner was one of the family's member, Riccardo Santorini, Rosamund and the player decided to go there. They then met two famous artists whose paintings were exhibited in the museum - Marco Marino and Antonio Russo. However, some minutes later, the team found one of the two artists, Marco Marino, dead with his head bashed in by a bust.

Mid-investigation, the team found museum watchman Jerry Miller, who was on night patrol, wandering around the crime scene. Later, the team found tourist Daniel Armstrong accidentally breaking a souvenir in the museum. Soon after, the team found enough clues to incarcerate Antonio for Marco's murder.

Admitting to the murder, Antonio told the team that Marco was actually a cheater behind his gorgeous cover. He then explained that Marco had insisted on working with Antonio to "improve his skills". However, in fact, Marco had stolen all of Antonio's work and then sold them with high price. When Antonio confronted Marco about it, Marco simply said that he just wanted to be more famous than Antonio and then called him an "underrated artist". Being angry, Antonio used his own Venus bust which was on display to kill Marco. Judge Park then sentenced him to 25 years in jail.

Post-trial, the player helped Leo find his lucky charm to reject artist Aurora Costa's crush for him after he gave back her the book that she accidentally dropped, since he could not love women. Later, Artemio Santorini asked Ned and the player for help finding his son Silvio Santorini, who had run away after having an argument with Artemio. The team then searched the museum, where they found a box containing a certificate of adoption for Silvio. After getting it to Trent, the team discovered that Silvio was not Artemio and Samuela Santorini's biological son, he was their adoptive son instead. When being questioned about this, Artemio admitted that he and Samuela had adopted Silvio since they could not give birth to children, and that was the cause of their argument earlier, when Silvio found out that he was his parents' adoptive son. The team then helped Artemio found Silvio's sunglasses, which he had dropped earlier, to help him reconcile with Silvio before Riccardo said that he had seen Silvio came home. They then went to Santorini mansion to search for Silvio's traces, only to find a shocking truth that...
