The Natural History Museum of Utah invites holiday shoppers to save 10% on everything in the museum store the first three Wednesday evenings in December (6th, 13th & 20th), from 5 to 9pm. With a wide array of holiday décor as well as rare and unusual gifts, shoppers will be delighted with stunning handcrafted ornaments, animal stockings, festive lights and even snow-in-a-can.
“We have such a fabulous selection of fun and unique items in the museum store this holiday season,” says store manager and buyer Suzanne Ruhlman. “The beaded star and ball ornaments handmade by the Huichol Indians from central-western Mexico are some of my favorites, along with our amazing assortment of beautifully handcrafted jewelry.”
Kids go crazy over the dinosaur, animal and science-related toys, books and trinkets that are always a museum store staple. And people of all ages love the Viking souvenirs only available until Vikings: Beyond the Legend closes around the first of January.
Gallery admission is not required to shop at the museum store or dine at the café. Museum members will receive a 20% discount when shopping at the store on these three nights.
