The Best Museum Shop in the World

The Best Museum Shop in the World | Sycamore Street Press 5

I never would have guessed it, but the award for my favorite museum shop ever now belongs to the one at Stockholm’s open air museum, Skansen. Straw and paper chandeliers, artisanal food in well-designed packaging, wooden dala horses, handwoven textiles, beautiful cleaning supplies… the list goes on and on. I could have spent a fortune in there! Instead, I walked away with a little bracelet made of wooden heart-shaped beads for Ingrid. And some lovely memories, of course. – Eva

Do you have a favorite museum store?

A couple more museums with gift shops that I love:

+ The MoMA in New York City

+ The Moderna Museet in Stockholm

(Also, Stockholm’s charming medieval streets, Tips on Traveling with a Toddler, and the gorgeous patterns at Svenskt Tenn.)

    Skansen is beautiful, the shop and everything. next time in St.holm, visit Gysinge bygnadsvård (http://www.gysinge.nu/butiken-stockholm) on Storgatan 31. Feels like a museum, but is a shop. My favourite in St.holm!!! I can wander around there for hours.
