Welcome to the Albany Institute Museum Shop.

The Museum Shop is now re-open!

Even though our store is re-open, we are working to increase the online availability of many of the outstanding items that we sell in the main museum shop.  Feel free to email us at museumshop@albanyinstitute.org to request an item or a fine art print reproduction. We will be happy to check inventory and if the item is in stock, we can arrange curbside pick-up or USPS delivery.

Whether you purchase in the museum shop or online, we appreciate your support of the Albany Institute of History and Art.  The museum shop offers an outstanding selection of merchandise that complements the museum’s exhibitions and collections and celebrates the vibrant history and culture of Albany and the Hudson River Valley including:

  • Your favorite images from the museum’s collection on note cards and postcards, or as fine-art-print reproductions
  • Exhibition catalogs and other museum publications
  • Books about the history, art, and culture of Albany and the upper Hudson Valley
  • Fine jewelry, exquisite textiles, and distinctive crafts by regional artists
  • Educational toys, games, puzzles, and art and history books for kids

All museum shop sales directly support the Albany Institute’s exhibitions and education programs.

The items that you see on this web site are a small selection of the many wonderful items that are available at the museum shop. We hope that you wil visit the musuem shop when the museum opens later this summer. The museum shop is located on the second floor across from the galleries.  There is no admission charge to come and visit the museum shop.  Free parking is available for visitors in the museums's parking lot located at the corner of Elk and Dove Streets.
