The Mini Museum

The Mini Museum is a portable collection of curiosities where every item is authentic, iconic and labeled. It’s been carefully designed to take you on a journey of learning and exploration.

Hans Fex has collected amazing specimens specifically for this project over the last 35 years. He then breaks those specimens down into smaller pieces and embeds them in resin. The result is you end up with an epic museum in a manageable space.

Each mini museum is a handcrafted, individually numbered limited edition. And If you consider the age of some of these specimens – it’s been billions of years in the making.  The majority of these specimens were acquired by contacting specialists recommended by museum curators, research scientists and university historians.
