This is going to sound a little weird, but one of my favorite spots inside the Columbus Museum of Art is the gift shop.
Hear me out. First of all, it’s not really a gift shop. It’s more like an eclectic, boutique art store. If you’re heading to the museum with shopping in mind, you won’t have to pay for parking or admission.
The store at CMA offers a variety of curated items that capture the spirit of the museum with creativity and excellent design. The items in the store range from handcrafted jewelry to the perfect coffee table art book.
Each week, visitors can take advantage of Museum Store Sunday. Stop in and pick up unique holiday gifts. During the month of December, Museum members save 20% off all purchases in the Museum Store, just in case you need a little extra incentive.
Since it is in fact the season to shop, I thought I’d help everyone out by suggesting a few of my favorite items available in the Museum Store.

It’s scarf season, so why not wear one that is literally a work of art? The original architectural sketches by Michael Bongiorno create the graphic pattern on the scarf. High fashion and an extra layer of warmth? That’s a win.
One hundred years after the Harlem Renaissance emerged as a creative force at the close of World War I, I Too Sing America offers a major survey on the visual art and material culture of the groundbreaking movement.
