Museum Store 

The Museum Store proudly serves the community at three campus locations.

Begin or continue your experience at the NCMA by visiting the main Museum Store in West Building. New enhancements include a large gallery wall featuring a rotation of works created by statewide artists. Our space has been reimagined with inviting and accessible furniture and displays as well as new merchandise from local artisans. We are thrilled to feature our new logo on an array of clothing, housewares, and small items to take your NCMA experience home and enjoy long after your visit. Families are always welcome, and maker tables are available for all ages.

The Exhibition Store features creations from NC artisans influenced by the modern masters. A gallery wall highlights photography, mixed media, and other framed options; scarves inspired by Wassily Kandinsky; and a custom candle from Usu Candle Co. titled Revival. Shop a wide range of selections with images by iconic artists, such as Edgar Degas, Vincent van Gogh, and Claude Monet. Browse over 40 books about impressionism, expressionism, and the artists in A Modern Vision, and pick up a stunning exhibition catalogue. Everything can be enjoyed in a retail experience replicating a living room, complete with cozy seating area and a welcoming activity table for youth.

The Welcome Center, located in the Museum Park, offers stunning views, nature-themed books and games, branded clothing items to make your walking adventures more enjoyable, and a selection of refreshments for purchase.
