Gift Shop Exterior

The Dragonfly Shoppe is a special place to purchase nature related gifts for adults and children and provides unique budget priced items for school children as well as gift and souvenir items for teachers, tourists, parents, grandparents, and other visitors.

Allowing students to shop gives them a chance to make independent decisions, improves math and social skills, and helps teach the concept of budget management.

Museum admission is not required if you are only visiting the gift shop.

Visit today to shop for Folkmanis puppets, Schleich Collectibles, American Expedition gift items, Aurora Plush, Magic Dragonfly, and other nature related t-shirts.
