Artifacts of Our Curiosity

Sometimes there are small treasures that show up on shelves of the museum that we can’t add to the collection, but feel like must be preserved. This is one of those treasures.

This darling package must have been donated a long time ago because no one currently working in the Mollusc range remembers who or where it came from. Apparently Things of Science were small boxes you could order in the 1950’s/1960’s with information and experiments covering a range of subjects. We’ve scanned up the little book and uploaded a photo of the shells that were included in the kit. Enjoy!
