The MSK-shop is the perfect place to find a book, a souvenir or an original gift made by local creative talent. The shop’s constantly changing inventory includes books about art, literature and philosophy, a growing selection of books for children, historic museum publications, posters, postcards and gadgets. At different times of the year, the shop has promotions or highlights specific publications.
The shop also sells a selection of items made by local creative talent. These items are hand-made, small, unique and durable. Currently the museum already sells leather book covers and cases, printed with works from the museum collection, brooches inspired by our paintings and wristbands made from old advertising banners.
Innovation since 2016
The Museum of Fine Arts Ghent is becoming a new, open, social place that connects art and society with each other. The entire transformation of the museum shop was an important step in this development. The space was redesigned and refurbished by a young design studio called Destroyers/Builders. The museum aims for the shop to be a place where people can rest, work and meet with each other.
