Kids' favorite creative space is putting its own twist on the holiday market tradition. Weekdays from 10am–6pm and weekends from 10am–3pm, visitors can check out a variety of STEAM goodies offered at The GIANT Room's market. If the little ones feel a rush of inspiration, parents can purchase timed tickets to the studio ($35/child) where STEAM enthusiasts can make their own gifts for loved ones.
