ST PAUL, Minn. — If you're looking for a unique gift idea this holiday season, consider a gift from the Science Museum of Minnesota.

Each year, the museum offers an array of art, nature, science, cultural, and history-themed gifts at its Explore Store. 

For the first time this year, many of the gift items are also available on the Science Museum's website. Products range from books to clothing to food, as well as a variety of items just for kids. Many of the items are locally-made or come from small businesses, and cannot be found in major retail stores.

Purchases help to support science education across Minnesota.

This year, the Science Museum of Minnesota will join 1,200 other museums across the country for Museum Store Sunday, encouraging visitors to consider supporting their favorite museums around the holidays, while providing special store discounts.
