The busy tourist season is starting and staff have ordered some fabulous new items for the shop.

Neat new items for kids include: tubes and buckets of dinosaurs, t-rex wrist pets, Color and Go travel colouring books and binoculars.

If you are looking for a gift, we have something for everyone. Three new items are beautiful etched glass bowls and plates designed by A.J. Salmon. These would make especially great gifts for weddings or anniversaries.

We are now featuring the work of a local glass artist in the shop: Stephanie Gould. Her jewelry is kiln formed dichraic glass which brings out the most amazing colours. All the earrings are free of both nickel and lead. We are also carrying her necklaces and pins. Stephanie also creates very lovely sand-glass plaques which look fabulous in front of any window.

Our gift shop is now open seven days a week – Monday to Saturday from 10am-5pm and Sunday noon to 4pm. Please note: if you are a museum member you will receive a 15% discount on any non-consignment item.
