      Hello, @Shannon! Yes, there will be additional items and styles as we build out more items. That said, both the Core Sample and the Fordite Pendant can be removed from their sterling silver chains and strung on a different necklaces. The Core Sample even comes with a length of black leather cord for this purpose. It was field tested this way by Helper Max who is now away at college. He loved it and I hear that his geology classmates did as well. :)

      And for anyone stumbling on this in the comments, we did email everyone yesterday so I'm sure you've already heard the news that we've launched a new line of jewelry. This is the secret project we've been teasing for some time now here and on Instagram. I'll mention it in more detail when I post the next project update but you can read more about this all-new collection here: https://minimuseum.com/jewelry/

      My partner and I were just sitting in bed watching your live Instagram video with helper Jamie showing us the touch version of the MM3 and it was so cool to look at all the interesting specimens and think that we have our very own mini museum full of all these wonderful things on display at our home now. All thanks to Hans and the Mini Museum team! We love our MM3 and can't wait to see what will feature in future editions of the mini museum! �

      For the SR-71 fans who didn't read Brian Schuls book (or saw one of his performances), at least read this summary of the classic sled speed story from Mr. Schul over on Wes Clarks website: http://wesclark.com/burbank/sr_71.html -- the facts may differ a bit each time he told that story, but like any good fishing story, it just gets better with time ;)

      Hello, everyone! I just posted a new project update with a reminder about the Third Edition t-shirts and a question about the next specimen you'd like to explore together! Details: http://kck.st/2xQq1al

      @Nooep You are so very welcome! Thank you for your support!

      @Kobe Thank you for the kind words! Glad you like the new packaging!! On VAT/sales taxes, I noted way back in June that the difficult part is finding a distributor arrangement that doesn't end up negating the savings on taxes (resulting in a price increase equal to VAT). We haven't given up though! Still working on it!

      Just received my second mini museum and it's even more beautiful than the last one. The specimens look great and the new box is super cool. I have only one complaint, the taxes I had to pay, €97!!! I expected it, because it was the same with the previous mini museum, but it still shocked me.

      Received my Mini Museum & Mini Museum touch today, here in Melbourne, Australia. Very much worth the wait and very high quality just like the other two editions that I have.

      I would like to know if you would sell or point me to where I can get some of the same specimen jars for the touch, I have a few small items I will love to add as my own personal touch as well.

      Thank you to Hans and the team for the joy that you have given to me to own such incredible pieces!

      Just received my large MM3, and I'm lost foe words. The packaging is top notch, but the MM itself is exquisite. Hans is a master craftsman with an eye for presentation, and boy does it show here. Each of these MMs (and I have all three thus far) represents an astonishing romp through space and time, and thus far I've seen nothing else quite like them. Here's to the next adventure, Hans!

      Hans thanks so much I received the museum last week. I can't tell you how thrilled I am with it. My twin 12 year olds think it's great to. My only regret is not finding you until the third one, if I had known about it believe me I'd have the first two. Anyway thank you again. I look forward to the fourth edition

      I'm a bit disappointed about the insect in amber i received.. There's only a wing of an insect visible on one edge of the amber and a hardly visible insect at another edge. I expected more with the price of it in mind.

      The mini museum itself is terrific though.

      Hi, @Shannon! Helper Jamie here. Thanks for the kind words! I'll let our brick master know! :)

      As for the pouch, hand washing should be fine. You can also use one a white "magic eraser" on the book to remove the discoloration on the guide, but be gentle since it is abrasive. For anyone else reading this, it looks like a batch of pouches is causing some dye transfer. If you discover this on your guide and can't remove it, please drop us an email at service@minimuseum.com.

      After reading some prior comments I checked with the person I gifted my mini museum too, minus the add ons their mine, and there is a red stain on the back of the companion guide. Would it be advisable to wash the protective pouch to remove the excess dye that seems to be staining the companion guide?

      The mini museum itself and the add ons are amazing, great work. The person who cut the cavern club bricks with the power saw did a top job keeping all their fingers intact.

      Hello, @Nicole! Thank you for asking! We're getting much closer on the add-ons. We don't have everything in hand yet, but we should soon. As for the method, we're going to try a lottery for the limited items. More information on that once we know exactly how many we'll have to offer.

      MM3 #1507 has found it's home! Absolutely amazing. I'm mesmerized by it.
      I also found red transfer on the back of the guide (I don't mind, just FYI for future projects)

      Unfortunately, I was charged additional $60 in tax and handling (HST for Ontario, Canada). I wasn't charged this on the MM2 and they changed the classification to art print so I'm looking into it. Heads up other Canadians.

      A variant MM1 of some sort would be wonderful for the MM lovers that missed out. I was thinking the other day of how cool a supersized MM would look too with tons of specimens.
