The pocket-size museum you can take anywhere
If you’ve always wanted to have your very own museum, a new Kickstarter project is allowing you to do just that. Curated by Hans Fex, the Mini Museum is a ‘portable collection of curiosities where every item is authentic, iconic and labeled’. Fex says he has collected these museum specimens over the last 35 years and carefully broken them down into smaller pieces and embedded them in resin.
Here’s what you can expect to find in your very own Mini Museum: specimens of a dinosaur egg shell (and dung), dracula soil, a piece of Mount Everest, a fragment of London Bridge, and even sand from Waikiki Beach. Amazing, and even if it is only a tiny piece of each specimen, it looks like a fun thing to own and show off to friends.
