At the Antiquities Company, we believe that playful exploration and discovery can stimulate learning and expand understanding of our planet and our place in its history. Our core passion is providing exciting, interactive and inspiring learning opportunities. We work to enable museum visitors to have fun, engaging, hands-on experiences that offer ways to learn about the lives and times of creatures that have gone before us.
When Tom Hendershot retired from his position as a corporate executive, he found time to pursue his lifelong fascination with natural history. Understanding the majestic creatures that lived before us, from the Ice Age to the Jurassic Period and beyond, became a mission. It led him to the badlands of North America for first-hand experiences in the world of dinosaurs and other ancient creatures.
Forays into the wilderness were transformative and inspired him to start the Antiquities Company in 2006. He launched the first product offering, The Prehistoria Collection, a collection of digitally created dinosaur posters. The Prehistoria posters were a hit, selling in museums across the country.
Connecting with museums became another passion for Tom and lead to the creation of two traveling museum exhibits. The first, ‘Ice Age Imperials’ was a grand success and was hosted by museums from the eastern seaboard to the great plains states. Ice Age Imperials was sold to a large municipal museum in early 2021. The second exhibit, ‘Amazing Dinosaurs!’ has also been extremely popular and is presently touring outside the United States.
