Great selection of interesting things. Prices didn't seem too crazy. Perfect for a souvenir or gift. The full store across the street has better selection than the gift shop inside MOMA.

As others have said well selected stock at good prices. There's also a branch at Spring Street in Soho. Buy $100 or more worth of product (before tax) and get free entry to MOMA ($25). I think this holds until end Nov 2014, but check it out with them

Very unique store if you're looking for a funky gift for someone (or yourself). Prices were a bit high, but otherwise cool store to check out.

There simply is no better gift shop in Manhattan. It is leading edge, unique, well-priced, accessible, fun, educational, tasteful! I go here every visit to NYC and buy tons of stuff to take home to friends and family. You can get great things for $5, $20, $50 - it fits every budget. There are things for kids, adults, Mom &...

I was in the store looking around at everything and took a particular interest in the OP-1 synthesizer 🎹 that they had, available to play 🎶 One of the members of staff came over and showed me how it worked 👬 They even held it for me until the next day 📦 What a great store 👯

MoMA Design Store regularly sells cutting edge products - housewares, jewelry, furniture, men's and women's accessories, etc. One of its newest products, a tempered glass stockpot with a silicone lid, designed by the Italian Massimo Castagna, is a thing of beauty (the stockpot). The silicone lid, however, while attractive, is something else, at a price of $53. You might consider... More

Every visit to NYC, I make a point of stopping in. Sometimes I buy stuff, but mostly I love looking at the innovative products they sell. From little items to full on furniture, it's cool to see items that have been so well thought out. Most items are so clever. And most or all are available on their website with... More
