After the new 1.2.0 Update for Animal Crossing New Horizons, you will find new events, items, and some returning cast members looking to sell their goods on your island. Through a multi-step process, you can now get Jolly Redd (formerly Crazy Redd) to dock on your island and sell some shady art pieces. Here’s how to unlock Redd’s ship in Animal Crossing New Horizons.
How to Open the Art Gallery in Animal Crossing New Horizons
The first thing you need to do is take a trip over to the museum following the update and speak to Blathers. He should mention that they can now begin to take art pieces and that is the only trigger you need for the first day, so you can sit back and enjoy some of the other new portions of the update for the time being.
After a day has passed (or some risky time traveling), you will discover Jolly Redd wandering around your island. This could be anywhere so make sure you have a proper search everywhere. Speak to him and purchase the piece of art he is selling. You then just need to run this piece back over to Blathers in order to get the next trigger, concluding another day’s work towards this goal.
Once you wake up another day older, you will then have an Isabelle announcement stating the museum is officially expanding and another full day must pass in order to continue this journey.

Now that time has allowed for the art gallery to be officially accessible, you will need to search out our old friend Redd again. He will be on the beach, where you will need to accept his deal, which will cause him to start parking Jolly Redd’s Treasure Trawler on your “secret” northern beach.
This section of your island is generally hidden behind your cliffs, so take a peak and utilize your camera tilt and mini-map to see where that is located.
Once you’ve found it, you can either use your ladder to get down to it, edit the landscape to make a path, or purchase inclines –you can regularly visit Redd’s shop whenever he takes port on your island.
That’s the step-by-step process detailing how to unlock Redd’s ship in Animal Crossing New Horizons. For more useful tips and information on the game, be sure to check out Twinfinite’s detailed wiki guide.
