The Blizzard Museum is a dedicated space in the main building at the Irvine Campus, where numerous works of art by the Blizzard artists are displayed.[1] These pieces are real paintings, as well as digital art, has blown up to giant size. The Blizzard Museum has a full-time curator who cycles in new pieces and keeps rotating the art on display throughout the year.

The museum also houses some of the art exhibits created for display at BlizzCon and other gaming shows, including life-size statues from StarCraft: Ghost, along with various characters and monsters from World of Warcraft. Besides artworks, the museum holds other items of historical interest and keepsakes, such as special edition merchandise, game launch event souvenirs, the original letter and $15,000 loan Mike Morhaime used to start Silicon & Synapse (which grew into Blizzard Entertainment), merchandise, awards their games have won, and much more.

A smaller display is set up every year at BlizzCon, as well as the Blizzard's WWI events before being merged,[2] and the BlizzCon Museum has debuted numerous pieces of Diablo, Warcraft, and StarCraft artwork long before (if ever) they showed up online in digital form.
