“We have 14 million objects in our collections, brought back from scientific expeditions around the world over the last 400 years. Each object has a unique story that deserves to be told, so choosing what to include hasn’t been easy,” says Joakim Engel, who is responsible for Precious.
“The exhibition is based on the stories behind the objects. How did they come to the museum? Why are they are so interesting? And what are the human stories behind them? Many of the objects are absolutely unique, but some are included simply because they are incredibly beautiful or especially fascinating. The most spectacular single object is, of course, Misty, but there will definitely be something for everyone – young and old alike,” he adds.
