On the Second Day of HMNS…shop for Sci-tastic Gifts

Our Museum Store has the city’s
best selection of dinosaur toys.

This holiday season, in a take-off of everyone’s favorite holiday classic, The 12 Days of Christmas (“fiiiiiiiiiive gol-den riiiiiiiings!”) we’ve got 12 full days of ideas for fantastic family fun this holiday season. (Of course, most of the ideas are things that are happening throughout the holiday season – or even year-round – we just think they’re perfect for that magical “What will we do today, family?” moment that pops up once school is out.)

On the second day of HMNS, we’ve got your gift-giving conundrum solved – with the slew of fabulous and creative gift options available at our Museum Stores.

Got a youngster on your list? Check out our unparalleled selection of dinosaur toys.

Jewelry lover? How about a necklace made from geode crystals?

Nature buff? Beautiful, preserved butterflies are sure to dazzle.

Tech-geek? Try our laser-cut home decorations.

In this video, HMNS Merchandise Manager Jennifer King walks you through our brand new, totally redesigned store and points out he best of what we have this holiday season. Best of all – all of the proceeds from our Museum Stores go to support educational programming at the Houston Museum of Natural Science. So, you can get something cool for everyone on your list – and feel great knowing that you’re helping to educate our next generation of scientists.
