Collection Story

Marine Life

A very blue corner with a mural of manatees and sea turtles by Finnish artist Riita Kuisma, an artwork painted underwater by famed Calypso member André Laban, a Fabrice Guérin photo of sperm whales in Mauritius, and an exclusively signed photo for The Little Museum of the World from the fantastic oceanographer and humanist François Sarano. A 1940’s Italian diving helmet, a 1900’s wood console marine map, and a ship’s navigation binnacle bring even more authenticity to this space.

Some of the oldest fossils in the world with 300 to 400 million year old Horseshoe Crabs, Ammonites, Orthoceras, Armored Fish, Eurypterus Sea Scorpions and more.
