Store Visits Made Easy
To help prevent overcrowding for schools choosing to visit the Curiosity Shop, we schedule time for your students to make store purchases. We will be happy to bag and box up all of your purchases and hold onto them until your group is ready to return to school. You are free to distribute the individually-named bags to students either at the Center, while on the bus ride home, or when you return to school. The store stocks a selection of high-quality books, science activity kits, souvenirs, and branded school supplies.
