Museum on Wheels

Reclaimed redwood, douglas fir, and cedar cabinetry. Marine-ply and aluminum carcass. Tricycle chassis made by Nijland.

This cargo trike is designed to house both a mobile exhibit collection and a kiosk for Exploratorium membership staff. The trike cabinetry tucks away for compact travel. Once parked, the surface expands to create the membership desk and the main box opens out into a seemingly endless cabinet of scientific curiosities.

Co-designed by Lee and Jesse Marsh for the Exploratorium
