RELICS - A History of the World Told in 133 Objects

A Mini Museum book like no other!

Relics: A History of the World Told in 133 Objects is a brand new journey that tells the history of our planet from its days as a dust cloud all the way up to the modern era!

Every copy of Relics purchased from our site comes with a certificate of authenticity stamped with ink infused with Tyrannosaurus Rex bone dust. As far as we know, we're the only book that can say that. 🦖

Relics contains condensed information from each of our past Mini Museum Companion Guides, as well as updates to past specimens and some brand new additions as well.

In addition to the stories of specimens old and new, we've also included a special essay about creating your own collection along with pictures from the Mini Museum community.

You didn't think that was it, right? Of course, there's more!

Making a book about specimens without actual specimens inside was something new for us, and well, we just couldn't stop ourselves from adding a little something extra... 😎

We've partnered with a high-tech lab to produce a very special T. Rex Bone infused ink that we can use to stamp Relics First Edition Certificates of Authenticity with a real specimen. As far as we know, we're the first to say "T. rex Bone Ink" and who better to share this with than you!

It's important to note here that this certificate is exclusive to orders made here on our site. We really tried to get this stamp in every copy of Relics, but some adventures are a little too exciting for some people.

So while Relics will be available in bookstores around the world, the First Edition Certificate of Authenticity with the T. Rex Bone Ink Stamp is exclusive to direct purchases on our site!


"Is this a collection of specimens or a book?"

To be super clear, Relics is a book. It does not contain physical specimens. Rather it is the story behind the specimens in the Mini Museum Collection and the last several billion years of history in our corner of the universe. That said, many of the specimens covered in the book are available here in the shop!

"Can I order the book elsewhere?"

Yes! Relics is also available on Amazon. If you're outside the U.S., this may be the best option from a shipping perspective as the book weighs nearly 2 lbs. You should also be able to order it from your local bookstore very soon as well.

Please keep in mind that ordering elsewhere means you will not receive the exclusive T. Rex Bone Ink Certificate
