THE SMALLEST MOLLUSK MUSEUM

MICRO’s first museum series is the award-winning Smallest Mollusk Museum.

A six-foot-tall natural history museum developed in collaboration with designers, storytellers, engineers, and scientists from the world’s leading research institutions, the Smallest Mollusk Museum explores the last 650 million years of life on earth.

Packed with 15 exhibits that include two miniature movie theaters, optical illusions, kinetic sculptures, 3D prints, and a holographic aquarium, in the Smallest Mollusk Museum mollusk biology and evolution are launching pads for visitors to explore brains, sensory organs, slime, and more.

Since launching publicly in late 2017, MICRO’s museums have already delighted over 160,000 visitors in everyday spaces from mall concourses to the front lobbies of New York City’s busiest public hospitals.

To experience the chapters, head over to the Smallest Mollusk Museum audio guide, read by Sean Rameswaram of RadioLab and Today Explained.
