The holidays are fast approaching, and if you haven’t already done your shopping for the season, or you’re stumped on where to start, we have a suggestion: go to a museum gift shop.
There are dozens of museums throughout the city catering to a variety of interests (science, history, movies, you get the idea), with stores that speak to the collections at each one. For those who are design-obsessed, there are plenty of stellar shops (including MoMA’s new store on 53rd Street) with stylish items that rival the best home goods stores. And if you’re shopping for a New York City nerd, you’ll find plenty of quirky gifts at spots like the Brooklyn Historical Society or the Museum of the City of New York.
So don’t panic if you’re still searching for the perfect present; these 15 stores at city museums have you covered.
