The purpose of the Museum Gift Shop is two-fold. The first is to bring entertainment and educational value to your visit. The items in the shop reflect the Museum’s mission and houses many artifacts from the Museum’s extensive collection and an important one, is to provide funding for the educational programs that the Museum offers. There are a variety of snacks and period toys for the children in a range of prices starting at about $1. Schools must let the museum staff know before their visit if they would like the Gift Shop open. Museum members receive a 10% discount on purchases.
