CLEVELAND, OH – (December 10, 2018) – You could drag your kids through a snowy, slippery parking lot into a crowded store or mall and battle it out with the other shoppers for last minute deals. Or, you could hang out at Great Lakes Science Center exploring hands-on exhibits until 6 p.m. and shopping for one-of-a-kind gifts in the Science Store until 7 p.m. on Saturday, December 22!

Park in our convenient attached garage out of the snow and ice, and enjoy complimentary hot chocolate from 5-7 p.m. and special science activities while you shop for fun, science-related toys, books, apparel and more in the Science Store. Give the gift of curiosity for a whole year with a Science Center membership, or register a budding young engineer for a day of Camp Curiosity over winter break. The concession stand at the Cleveland Clinic DOME Theater will be selling other refreshments as well. Guests who wish to only visit the store can do so without buying admission to the museum.

“Super Saturday” will be your last chance to shop the Science Store before Christmas, as the Science Center will be closed on Sunday, December 23 due to the Cleveland Browns home game going on next door, and on December 24 and 25 as well to give staff time to spend with their families for the holidays.

(Editor’s Note: The Science Center’s fall/winter operating hours are 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Tuesday through Saturday and noon to 5 p.m. on Sundays. The Science Center is closed on Mondays and during all Cleveland Browns home games. The Science Center is also closed on Christmas Eve and Christmas Day.)
