Food & Shopping
North Star Science Store
Looking for a unique gift? The North Star Science Store, located inside the Reuben H. Fleet Science Center, is the perfect place to shop for gifts, toys and souvenirs. We offer a wonderful assortment of curious and hard-to-find items, including the delightfully different astronaut ice cream. We've got popular IMAX titles like Everest and Africa: The Serengeti, a great selection of books (from science books to children’s picture books), glow-in-the-dark items and more! Examine tons of science-related products to awaken the astronomer, physicist or chemist within. Shop, learn and enjoy!
Galileo's Café is a great location to pick up a quick snack or a light meal. The casual, friendly atmosphere and the great selection of items, including pretzels, pizza, salads and sandwiches, should satisfy any growling stomach. And if you’re looking for liquid refreshments, we also serve a variety of drinks, including sodas, juices and coffees (even mochas and espressos!). The best part is, admission to the Fleet is not required to visit the café. So stop by, grab a bite and enjoy the view at one of our outdoor fountain-side tables.
