Q: The six month subscription cost $29.99 a month yesterday. Why did the price go up by $10 a box?Asked by Kathy S., November 2021
The price of the Matter box varies based on the duration of the subscription and any coupons applied to your cart. There are currently some promotions on our page that can get the cost of the box down to near that price for a 12 month subscription before shipping and tax.

Your first box will ship in the first week of next month, no matter what day you subscribe. All boxes ship in the first week of each month.
Best item yet? Ferrofluid. (Or Marian meteorite)
This box is amazing. We got it for our son thinking it might be fun for a few months. He asked to renew it because it is so great. Opening it is a family event now. The box has contained some truly astounding and unique objects such as a piece of a Mars meteorite, NASA film, antique medical supplies, fossils, gems and pearls, historically interesting pieces....it is a joy to have a subscription box that is so inspirational.
I enjoyed getting fossils and rocks. Other stuff was neat as well though.
We have loved our two boxes so far! The items included are unique and super cool! It has become a family affair opening our box!
Awesome Box of goodies
If you are into science, and you want something purely unique, this is the box for you. Every item feels like an Easter egg. From space exploration to ancient poop (one of my favorite objects…) this is truly an amazing box.
Love the Matter box. I actually used the hand warmers while back packing.
My husband LOVES this crate. Everything comes with fact cards about the items you get and all the items are interesting. Thanks!
I got a huge trilobite fossil in my box. My favorite science museum's trilobites are half the size of mine. I can't believe this doesn't cost more.
The trilobites are one of the oldest fossils that we have featured - at about 500 million years old! And thank you for the feedback. We strive to include the highest quality items in the box of Matter - so glad you loved the fossil you received!
