Historian Seth Minas is a Varrock Museum employee and can be found on the first floor, near the staircase. When you talk to him about the quests you have completed, you earn Kudos and fill some of the empty exhibits. Minas will also happily take any ancient effigies off you in exchange for an ancient lamp that gives 1,000 XP in any skill over 20.

Quest ListEdit

After completion of certain quests, you can go to Minas and give him information about them. He will, in turn for the information, give you Kudos and antique lamps(antique lamps are acquired after certain amount of kudos has been earned from Minas). Kudos can be used for exp rewards and, in future, will allow you to pass freely between the Digsite and the Island north of it. The list of quests needed to be completed are:

Free questsEdit

Members questsEdit

After the Meeting History quest, 5 additional kudos are given by speaking with Historian Minas. Also, players can bring him the Prophecy Tablet from Glorious Memories to receive 5 kudos. In total, you can earn 95 Kudos from Minas.


  • When you donate an ancient effigy and are rewarded an antique lamp, the dialogue between the player and Historian Minas is a reference to the last lines from the movie Raiders of the Lost Ark. The dialogue is as follows: Historian Minas: "The museum thanks you for your donation. We'll have our top men look into this right away!" Player: "Who?" Historian Minas: "Top...Men..."
  • If you use Magnifying glass on display number 27 (The Layers of Archaeology Soil Layers) Minas will tell the player "Please don't touch the timeline displays" on free to play worlds, even though he's a Members NPC.
