To get fossils, first you have to find the star shaped holes they're buried in. It's not impossible to find them at night, but they are a lot easier to see when it's bright out.
You'll also need a shovel to dit it up, so make sure you have one with you.
List of Shovels
Every day you can find new fossils buried on your island. If you've found all the fossils on your island a day, you'll have to wait until the next to find new ones.
You can also find buried fossils on the islands you visit during Mystery Tours, so if you want to keep searching for fossils after you've found the ones on your island, we recommend using Nook Miles to buy tickets and go on Tours.
Once you've found a fossil, head to the Museum. If you haven't unlocked the Museum yet, you'll have to progress the story.
If you bring Blathers fossils, he'll offer to assess what kind of fossil it is. If you've never shown him a fossil before, you'll unlock the Nook Mileage activity called Fossil Assessment.
Once the fossil has been identified, you can either choose to donate it, sell it or take it back with you.
We recommend donating the first of every fossil to the Museum, but they do fetch a nice amount of money, so if you're lacking Bells it might be okay to sell them instead.
You can also trade fossils, fruits and recipes with other players over at our Trading Board!

I'm curious... When all fossils have been donated to complete the exhibit, will you still be able to dig up fossils?
