Since reopening to the public on July 1st, we have implemented new visitor services standards and floor plans to create a safe museum and shopping environment with physical distancing in mind. As a result, we are redefining our Museum Shop product selection to meet increased demand for a wider variety of books, activities, games, and puzzles for all ages.

During this transition, we are clearing out discontinued products including: select jewellery, artisan crafts, and souvenir goods. These will be discounted from 30 to 70 percent off regular price and are available for purchase

in-store only.

Revenue generated from shop and online purchases support our museum operations, educational programs, and ongoing exhibitions.

We look forward to seeing you!
