There were some very interesting products here. A little bit of touristy stuff but some things you would genuinely want as well. This shop is located directly across the street from MOMA (there's also a store in MOMA with a slightly different range)

Loved this shop, plenty of room to look at and examine all the quirky, imaginative and useful items on sale. I bought two open book shaped lamps, a grater with a bottom to it to catch the threads which normally end up all over the...More

The newly renovated MOMA Design Store, across from the Museum, is a treat. The jewelry section, featuring Alex Bittar pieces, is worth a visit by itself. Lots of enticing items in fashion and electronics, also.

Great gift shop in the MOMA. Spent too much money, but got a lot of great gifts and gift ideas. Very unique items, some priced fairly, some very expensive

Great designs and products in all areas of decor, housewares, fashion, electronics and general whimsy. The shop has an open and clean feeling and I've found the staff there to be quite helpful. As others have mentioned, the price tags on things can be shocking...More

I'd never expect to see cameras and expresso makers in a museum gift shop, but MoMA certainly pulls all stops! From the inexpensive to the hip to the kitschy to the pricey and sophisticated for the art connoisseur, they have it. Spend at least 30...More

We stopped in the design store rather on a recommendation and it was pretty cool. There are amazing and unusual things on sale that you just don't get anywhere else. That said, it's all at a premium. If you planning on shopping, ensure your budget...More

I love this store! Many items are unique and artistically designed. Some are very expensive - but some are affordable. I especially like their jewelry and watches. Also, you can enjoy just looking at their cool merchandize and get ideas for yourself.
