The Museum of Post-Modern Art is a pedestrian area landmark unique building that comes with the Cities: Skylines Parks and Promenades DLC.
To unlock it, you must:
- Have a pedestrian area visited by 250 tourists per week
- Reach the Tiny Town milestone (360 – 1,500 population, depending on the map), which unlocks the ability to create pedestrian areas
Once these requirements are met, you’ll be able to build the Museum of Post-Modern Art from the Pedestrian Area Landmarks tab of the Unique Buildings menu for ₡100,000.
Until then, you can check your progress towards unlocking it by hovering over its silhouette in the menu.
Two other unique buildings—the Pedestrian Street Market Hall and the Sunken Plaza Shopping Mall—are unlocked by having even greater numbers of tourists in your pedestrian area (350 and 500, respectively).
This means once you’ve unlocked the Museum of Post-Modern Art, you’re also well on your way to unlocking the other two.
How To Create a Pedestrian Area
Step 1: Paint a Pedestrian Area
Select the Paint Pedestrian Area tool from the Districts and Areas menu. Draw over the part of the map that you want to turn into a pedestrian zone.
Step 2: Build a Service Point
Each pedestrian area requires at least one service point to work.
Service points allow the buildings within your pedestrian area access to cargo delivery and garbage collection even when not connected to your road network. These service points require access to the rest of your city’s roads.
The Small Pedestrian Area Service Point is the first one that you have access to.
Build one by going to the Pedestrian Areas tab of the Parks & Plazas menu.
Step 3: Build Pedestrian Streets
With your service point in place, you can now proceed to build the layout of your area using pedestrian streets.
You’ll find a variety of small and large pedestrian street types in the Pedestrian Areas tab of the Parks & Plazas menu, as well as the Pedestrian Areas tab of the Roads menu.
Step 4: Build Places for People To Go
You can now turn that pedestrian area into whatever you wish: a touristy area with lots of parks and unique buildings, a shopping district, or even residential or office zone.
Tips for Getting Tourists Into Your Pedestrian Area
To unlock the Museum of Post-Modern Art, you’ll need 250 weekly tourists—not just any visitors, but people from out of your city.
(Take note that this is in a single week, not accumulated over time.)
Here are tips for helping you achieve that target:
Tip #1: Build Parks and Plazas
You can use your pedestrian area for various purposes, but for this unlock it might be best to specifically create one that’s more geared towards leisure and recreation.
The Parks and Promenades DLC comes with a variety of plaza assets specifically for your pedestrian areas. You can find these by going to the Pedestrian Area Plazas tab of the Parks & Plazas menu.
Of course, you can also build your other parks and plazas from the base game or other DLCs if you wish.
Tip #2: Build Unique Buildings
Unique buildings tend to draw lots of tourists.
So if you’ve unlocked some that are easily within your budget, it’s worth it to build a few in your pedestrian area.
In the screenshot above you can see the Old Market Street building, which blends perfectly into the area.
Tip #3: Provide Public Transport Nearby
Public transport will make it much easier for large numbers of tourists to come to your pedestrian area.
If you have access to and can afford intercity transport such as trains and airports, those will work great in this scenario.
