It’s no secret that the best part of any museum is the gift shop. And though much of the best physical museum store shopping is reserved for those who reside in big cities, some of the best-known institutions in the USA and beyond have made their exclusive products and merch available online.
Modern art museums from London to Los Angeles are teeming with amazing pieces, from steezy totes to decorative skate decks, collectible pins, and on-point interiors. Below, we’ve browsed some of the most prestigious contemporary art destinations in the world for the best of their product offering, for some decidedly more cultured cops than what you may be used to from Highsnobiety.

You may have seen our recent round-up of fashionable totes for men, but these museum store renditions give even the biggest brands a run for their money. Recent finds include a beautiful recycled cotton canvas SFMOMA logo tote made in collaboration with Baggu, a bag that features a Pablo Picasso lithograph originally commissioned by LACMA’s Graphic Arts council, and a large, yellow PVC tape tote designed by Simeon Farrar London Studio.
Museum merch may sound nerdy, but look hard enough and there’s a treasure trove of super stylish sweaters you’re sure to find a new favorite in. Don’t believe us? The MoMA design store is home to an exclusive collaboration with streetwear staple Champion, while a venture over the East River (or a simple URL change) will lead you to a steezy Brooklyn museum collab with ALIFE.
On the accessories front, a classic NY Yankees cap gets the MoMA treatment and can be yours for only $30 – a definite highlight from our museum store finds. Other accessories sure to add some artistic flair to your ‘fits include a pop-art inspired heavy-weight bracelet by Ann Dexter-Jones exclusive to the Whitney Museum of American Art shop, and a band-aid ring hand-formed by artist Michelle Lopez, made as a limited run of only 50.
