When you think of gift-giving, don't overlook the Caribbean's oldest and largest public art museum, the National Gallery of Jamaica. Not only will you be purchasing a unique, one-of-a-kind item or a reproduction of a work from our

collection, but you'll be buying local and supporting a cultural institution in the process. The National Gallery Gift Shop goes above and beyond to offer

products you might never have imagined you would be able to leave a museum with.

If you're on a quest to find exceptional gift items for a

special occasion or person, the National Gallery Gift Shop is the perfect place for you to visit. The Gift Shop offers an assortment of fine merchandise, including: jewellery, prints, paintings, photographs, postcards, handcrafted woodwork items, T-shirts, ceramics, and home decor items. Overlooking the Kingston Waterfront, at 12 Ocean Boulevard, the gift shop also has an impressive range of aromatic spa products, such as bath oils and salts, handmade soaps, scented and mosquito-repellent candles.

There is also an extensive selection of books and magazines that focus on the development of Jamaica's art and culture. National Gallery of Jamaica exhibition catalogues are also available to provide readers with a deeper sense and appreciation of our current and past exhibitions, which have sought to articulate a cohesive Jamaican art history. You can also find a range of local and regional recipe books, as well as fun-filled story books for children.

The National Gallery of Jamaica Gift Shop offers something for everyone, at every price range. Some of the unique and engaging products that you will see in the Gift Shop are developed by the gallery staff of art historians and designers, with great focus on quality and attention to art historical details. Revenue earned from the Gift Shop helps to support the National Gallery

of Jamaica's education and

exhibition programmes.
