About us

We are a cabinet of curiosities based in Leuven, Belgium.

The history of Spectandum's collection goes back to the day we stumbled upon a Napoleon III case filled with exotic birds at Porte de Clignancourt in Paris.

These colourful birds captured our imagination.

That is how a passion for Artificialia, Naturalia, Exotica, and Scientifica began.

This passion has taken us to the four corners of the Earth, looking for fascinating wonders and oddities of the natural world.

Natural or human-made, they all have messages to convey, secrets to unveil and stories to tell.

Stories we are looking forward to sharing with you.

Welcome to Spectandum's world of wonders.
