The Musem Store at LASM

The Museum Store at LASM is much more than just a gift shop. Our mission is to extend LASM's educational message by offering merchandise that relates to our exhibitions and programs.

Visiting the Museum Store could a be a lesson in itself in mathematical practices and economic concepts since it presents an opportunity for students to understand the connections between math, currency, and economics.

We recognize that even our youngest shoppers learn from their visit to the Museum Store as we observe students reason with how much their coin or bill is worth and estimate if they have enough money to pay for what they have selected. Independent decision making and staying within their budget is a rewarding and practical experience for students. 

Plan a mini-lesson for your students before their visit. have them explore basic economic concepts of distinguishing between wants and needs, or producers and consumers, to more fundamental economic concepts of personal finance, economic decision making, or exchange and trade. Prince begin at under a dollar...browsing is free!

We schedule groups older than 1st grade on a rotation through the Museum Store as part of their visit. For groups unable to shop, the Museum Store at LASM can create student take-home bags for a modest price. Please contact the store at 225.344.5272 ext 118, at least two weeks prior to your visit, for this service.
