Museum stores are always good places to shop for design items and jewelry, but they can start to feel generic after a while. At the Anchorage Museum, we feature our take on Northern design and placed-based items. In lieu of stereotypical tourist items, we examine our place in the North and use that distinction to feature projects that are Museum-designed, artist designed and curated to pair our interesting place with interesting items. The Museum’s mission is to highlight the art, design, culture, science and history of the North, and that is reflected in our merchandise. From authentic works by Indigenous artists, to books that offer many perspectives into Northern people and landscape, to art and clothing that plays off stereotypes and plays up good design, we are a distinct Museum Store in a distinct environment.
