I just found the Shrine of Mehrunes Dagon, but unfortunately it is behind a locked door that cannot be picked. So I have to find the key if I want to get the Daedric artifact from Mehrunes Dagon.

Where can I find this key and what quest is it connected to? Is this the typical Daedric Shrine where I perform a quest and get an artifact as a reward?

It's connected to Pieces of the Past, which unlocks when you're level 20. Once you turn level 20, a courier will inform you of a museum opening up in Dawnstar. There, you'll run into a guy named Silus Vesuius who begins the quest.

During the quest:

He'll task you with getting all three parts of Mehrunes’ Razor. Once you do that, he'll join you when going to the shrine, and will unlock it.

Just as an additional aside (and major spoiler):

At the end of the quest, you'll have a choice between killing Silas or letting him flee. You must kill Silas in order to get the Daedric artifact.

Usually you cannot kill a quest starter/ giver. But depending on your system is your answer. PC its alright. Ps3 or XBox, Good luck without the quest –  user20336 Feb 22 '12 at 4:20
