You know what time it is? Valentine’s Time.

February 4, 2011

And we have so many ways to celebrate! Whether your bringing the kids, a friend or a date, we’ve got you covered.

The Lead Up: Gift Options!

Give the stars: in Roman mythology,
diamonds are splinters of stars
that the god Eros used as arrow tips.
You can put them to a much more
romantic use.

Our Museum Store is currently featuring The Mythology of Love – our top gift selections for Valentine’s Day. The best part: each one is based on an ancient mythological belief about the material from which it is made. So – your gift comes with a story. A romantic story.
