Now, to go to the museum, do not even leave the house. And we are not talking about the technologies of virtual reality, "carrying" users in the 3D premises of the museums of the world. We are talking about a real museum, which you can visit at any time. More precisely, hold in your hands. After all, he is so small, which will fit on the bookshelf. But its dimensions do not at all affect the value of the exhibits presented in it.
It all started with the fact that in the hands of the eleven-year-old Hans Feks (the future creator of the mini-museum) hit the fossil bone of the dinosaur. Since then, he decided to collect a collection of rare and unique artifacts. For particularly rare copies of Hans, had to post large amounts of money that he was not so easily got. Over time, collecting from the hobby turned into a serious occupation, and at the same time the idea came to share artifacts along with the world. But before implementing an idea of life, it was necessary to make sure that all the extracted elements are not fake. For this, Hans Feks did a great job: he consulted with archaeologists and specialists around the world, held a huge number of laboratory research and materials tests. Of course, getting all the necessary certificates cost a round sum - about $ 300, 000. But the cost of Hans paid off: putting the idea of a mini-museum at the Kickstarter startup, he attracted more than a million dollar investment in his project. This money was enough to organize the production of mini museums and the company for their sale.
