New Name and Look for St. Charles History Museum Gift Shop

Museum Shop Reveals New Brand and Offerings for Patrons

The St. Charles History Museum gift shop has a new name and look. “The Curious Fox,” as it is now known, features a new logo and new items for patrons, including St. Charles branded pillows, blankets, t-shirts and other apparel, locally produced pottery, jewelry, honey and salsa products.  

The shop’s new look also aligns with the museum’s existing brand décor and style while the new interior arrangements allow for additional merchandise to be displayed.  

“We’re very proud of our shop’s new name and look. These enhancements offer a refreshed experience for our patrons. We have no doubt that “The Curious Fox” will inspire curious visitors to stop by and look around,” according to Executive Director Alison Costanzo. 

In addition to the new items, the museum shop has offered a myriad of St. Charles-branded merchandise for many years, such as glasses, crocks, postcards, ornaments and more. All proceeds from purchases support the Museum and its mission to preserve and present St. Charles’ rich history. 

The Curious Fox and the Museum are open Tuesday through Saturday from 11:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. For more information, Museum staff may be reached at 630-584-6967 or via e-mail at
