Museum is a tightly structured thriller that follows a rather basic story template of a detective/cop who involves people precious to him in a crime and forces him to stray towards vigilante justice to save them.

Majority of thrillers lives and dies on their execution. The most important aspect of this work is not the story or complex themes but simply the ability to engage and excite the viewer which Museum excels at more than anything. There's a constant sense of tension throughout the three volumes that makes you want to keep turning page after page to find out what happens next.

Warning: Spoilers ahead.

Story: 8/10

Museum is a really well done mystery series, kept me on the edge of my seat the whole time. No scene is wasted and are all important to the plot and story. There are no major flaws to the story, I just don't think its brilliant or particularly creative. There is no major twist or idea that brings the manga to the next level. It was thrilling, had some interesting moments, but that's about it.

Character: 7/10

Much like the story all the characters fit into the series nicely. The main focus being on our detective who doesn't bring enough attention read more

I definitely wanted to enjoy this much more than what I did. When it comes to a good thriller, you should be kept at the edge of your seat wanting to know what happens next. Where Musuem 21 excels is its ability to make you NEED to turn the page. The strong points are the murders, but unfortunately, the weakest points are the actual investigations and characters.

The best way I can describe the main character is a Mary Stu detective who with minimal effort reaches into his butthole to come to a conclusion. He's meant to be a genius detective as far as the manga read more

Museum is a well-written thriller that follows a fairly simple tale template of a detective who becomes involved with crimes involving people close to him and is forced to turn to a vigilante justice to defend them. Its pretty fast paced and keeps you on the edge which most thrillers fail to do. The manga it is drawn pretty well  and excels to portray the torture scenes in it.  Museum is a very common narrative among detective stories, However, there is a element that is; a frenzied development until the series is concluded. It is probably one of the best thriller or mystery manga's I have read more
