Mini Museum Out of the Vault - First Edition ID #4731 (LARGE - 33 Specimens)


Please Note: While public sales of the First Edition ended several years ago, we have kept damaged, incomplete, or otherwise defective museums on hand in storage. After the complete sale of the First Edition's initial and reserve stock we have still been asked by customers for any remaining museums.

Rather than keep these museums with authentic specimens in the vault, we have chosen to share them with the world at a discounted rate. Each of these museums will be listed individually with the limited edition number, description of anomalies, and photos.

As such, these museums are final sale, sold as is, and will not be elligble for returns, replacements, or exchanges.

Mini Museum Out of the Vault - First Edition ID #4731 (LARGE - 33 Specimens)

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. Each Mini Museum is a handcrafted, limited edition.

This First Edition Museum (ID #4731) is a complete collection. Our QA team originally rejected it due to missing Duck-Billed Dinosaur, Pterosaur, and Dinosaur Dung specimens.

Like all First Edition Mini Museums, this 33 Specimen First Edition Mini Museum includes:

  • Custom Microfiber Pouch
  • Display and Storage Box
  • Certificate of Authenticity
  • Individual numbering, embedded in the Mini Museum 

    Please Note: The Mini Museum is a handmade product and the production process lends itself to small variations. This particular museum was rejected from the original Kickstarter and public sale runs and is priced at a discount due to production errors. All Mini Museums are sold "as-is" and by purchasing a Mini Museum, you acknowledge that such variations can occur. Such variations highlight the artisanal nature of the project, as each Mini Museum is made by hand and absolutely unique. This item is not eligible for returns, replacements, or exchanges.


    The First Edition of the Mini Museum was the fulfillment of a life-long dream to share a collection encompassing billions of years of science and history with people around the world. Over 5000 people in 68 countries helped make this project possible!

    The Mini Museum is a handcrafted, limited edition collectible. The unique specimens are artfully arranged and clearly labeled. The entire collection is encased in Lucite acrylic and designed to inspire for generations.


    First Edition Production Note: The Mini Museum is a hand made product and the production process lends itself to small variations.

    It is also important to note that while the First Edition contains a complete lineup of specimens, it was made before we refined our processes. This means there will be minor imperfections in the matrix and specimens may not be perfectly aligned. In addition, the acrylic used for the First Edition is different from all other Editions, so there will be some discoloration. These variations are consistent across the entire First Edition Collection and are to be expected with a first-run endeavor.

    Finally, as noted above, this museum carried imperfections which caused it to be rejected from the original Kickstarter and online shop inventories. Descriptions and photos of these issues can be found above and the museum has been discounted based on these issues. This item is a final sale and is not eligible for returns, exchanges, or refunds.
