Ratchet & Clank (2016) logo

An Insomniac Museum appears in Ratchet & Clank (2016 game), reached through a teleporter in Grimroth Razz' garage on Veldin in challenge mode. Unlike previous Insomniac Museums, this Insomniac Museum does not provide developer commentary, but rather, contains images, posts, and 3D models of past games in the Ratchet & Clank series developed by Insomniac Games.

The museum has a main hub and six different hangars. Each hangar is unlocked based on how many gold bolts are collected, though the first hangar requires none. Zooming in with the Plasma Striker does not display the HUD, allowing players to easily take screenshots using the 'Share' button on the PlayStation 4.

Main hub

The main hub is a long room first accessed with the teleporter, which will take the player back to Veldin when used. This contains the six large garage doors leading to the other hangars. Behind the teleporter at the start are three posters, depicting the Japanese cover art for Going Commando and Up Your Arsenal respectively, and one showing Rusty Pete eating a burger. There are two moving signs here, with the green sign on the left showing a one-eyed green alien, and the green sight on the right an advertisement for the XK-81 Jetpack.

Throughout the rest of the room, large boxes can be found with various signs etched onto them, along with gears, toolboxes, a miniature model of a grav-train carriage on Kerwan in the 2016 game, a statue of Qwark, and copies of his book Body By Qwark from Into the Nexus.
