Top ways to experience MoMA Design Store and nearby attractions

The area
Address
Neighbourhood: 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.

MoMA Design Store Soho is one of my favorite stores for stationary, home goods and decoration which are inspired by modern art with delicate appearance and creative functions.

There is always something interesting and pushing you to buy even when you don’t really need it. The average price is kind of high compared to other stores so I always wait for sales.

I don't always have time to go through the museums but I ALWAYS HAVE TIME for the MOMA shops and this one was the best yet. I got into big trouble with my husband for the shopping I did (had to bring it back to Sydney) but it was worth it. Highly recommended

After spending a leisurely time at the MOMA Museum directly across the street I wandered into the store.
It’s overflowing with innovative interesting and in some cases excellent but quirky designed products.
I met up and made friends with an interesting woman and her daughter while there.
I love the vibrant use of color employed throughout the store.
It’s well worth a visit especially as Christmas is on its way!

The new building is very open, vast and I am sure people who like this kind of art will have lots of pleasure here.
Many artists are not known to me and some were vivid with colors .
I put some photos for you to get the impression of what I did like.

MoMA’s design store really fits the legal definition of a museum as a stand-alone entity. The selection of trinkets and other knick-knacks may very well get your children begging for its possession.

The MoMA Design Store is my "go to" place to shop for unique gifts. The store offers everything from small trinkets to expensive items. I find that I am always able to find really interesting items for people of all ages (and things for myself, too!). It's great to find gifts that you don't find in every other store. I especially like the kitchen tools and serve ware. Looking forward to doing holiday shopping at MoMA again this year!
