Love this store

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 but they are selling original designs not knockoff look alikes. I'm particularly enamored with their... 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 minutes here and I pretty much guarantee you'll find something you'll love! Definitely would go... 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 is robust!

Had changed a bit since my last trip in April - store had been revamped and perhaps less items than previously But still best store for buying gifts that you an't find anywhere - always something different in watches, jewellry, anything to do with design that would enhance your home.

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.

Exquisitely simple little earrings, cubes of sterling silver for $35. Perfectly modern souvenir of our visit to MoMA. Most items in the shop were quite pricey, of course.

The store is full of nice, cool stuff. It is a little expensive, specially for stuff you find everywhere, but they have some special items, exclusive for this store.

Staying in Midtown

Neighbourhood Profile
Midtown
This is the iconic New York that so many visitors imagine before they visit—spectacular skyscrapers like the Chrysler Building and Empire State Building, iconic public buildings like Grand Central Terminal and the New York Public Library, and the non-stop hustle and bustle of the city streets. Fifth Avenue is a shopper's heaven where you can find every kind of store imaginable, with fashion brands ranging from the affordable to the ultra-fancy. Visit the Rockefeller Center to experience towering Art Deco grandeur, and foodies will love the busy restaurants that stay open late in Koreatown. After dark, Midtown calms down a bit, but at any time of day or night it still feels 100% New York.
