Shoppers can also enjoy visiting the museum.

Valley City State University students spent Thursday packaging up books and other supplies for soldiers as a service learning project and charity campaign.
The students in professor Jonna Zinielâ€™s human communication course have spent the past two weeks gathering donations, including books, cards and letters and basic toiletries, to send to soldiers serving overseas.
The organization, called â€śBooks for Soldiers,â€ť has grown from sending just books to much more.
