Museum Store 

The Museum Store serves visitors at the West Building Main Store, East Building Exhibition Store, and Welcome Center.

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 local artisan creations inspired by Dutch and Delft themes, including ceramics, glass, textiles, and jewelry. Book selections feature fiction, nonfiction, poetry, and art titles. The NCMA graphic designers have created branded items with images from the Dutch Art in a Global Age exhibition. These include wearable art, desk accessories, and more. Please join us for a unique retail experience.

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.
