Have you ever seen rocks as old as Earth itself, been awed by the natural power of a tooth from the mighty megalodon shark, gazed at the ingenuity of a 10th century Viking axe or a 14th century Samurai sword, or considered the historical significance of a soccer ball owned by Pelé or Steve Jobs's iconic turtleneck as you held them in your hand?

The Mini Museum gives you the privilege to explore some of the most significant pieces of history closer than you'd be allowed as a visitor to the most renowned museums in the world.

The Mini Museum is a complete collection of curated curiosities artfully arranged for display and appreciation. Ranging across both space and time, these rare treasures define snapshots that tell the past of the universe, the natural history of Earth, and the story of humanity's great achievements.

The limited edition selections of artifacts include tiny pieces of some of the oldest, rarest, and most interesting materials on the planet (and even off it) in display cases designed to show their beauty. The portable museums include certificates of authenticity so you know you're getting genuine objects and a full-color bound companion guide to explain the significance of the item and the specific details of the included specimen.
