At Pilgatan's Christmas market on December 11, visitors can buy Christmas presents locally and climate-smart from small business owners from the area. In addition to Pilgatan and Curiosum, there are also stalls outside Hotell Gamla fängelset and at the book café Pilgatan and Bildmuseet.

“We are open as usual between 12 and 17 and all children who come by and say hello get a little Christmas craft to bring home. Of course we also offer glögg and gingerbread cookies, says Alexandra Björnham, project manager at Curiosum at Umeå University.

Curiosum's shop at the entrance offers year membership cards and gift cards as well as Christmas presents for curious children of all ages.

“Grow your own crystal” and “Build a robot” are very popular gifts and now we also have a lot of new fascinating experimental boxes for sale,” says Alexandra Björnham.

Visitors who buy tickets to go into Curiosum will experience a lot of exciting and fun activities, including: watching and participating in the science show Bubbelbus, making your own super soap bubbles in the Chemistry lab and programming a robot. In the dome theater, the film "BIG - a cosmic journey through time and space" is shown. Curiosum is open both on Saturday and Sunday.
