Further details

Richard Herring, comedian, podcaster, and ex-employee at the London Telephone Directory where he managed to enter the name of Stewart Lee as "Stewart Wee", gives The Museum of Curiosity the mad monk Grigori Rasputin, a man who held much power and who believed that sinning made you more holy.

Dr. Kristen Lippincott, aka "The Queen of Time" due to her work for the Director of the Royal Observatory Greenwich, and also the Deputy Director of the National Maritime Museum, donates to the Museum a "eureka moment", the wonderful feeling you get when you realise something great.

Australian zoologist Dr. Christofer Clemente, who is a specialist in animal locomotion, who has developed insect-repelling surfaces and auditioned lizards for a week for David Attenborough, offers the Museum a lizard popping a wheelie - a lizard running on just its back legs.
