Museum Shop Christmas Cards

December 3, 2014

By Tab Byrum

When we travel we visit lots of museums, it’s always a great chance to see artwork by artists and Old World Masters that you’ve only read about in books.  For instance, when we were in London in October we were able to visit a special exhibition of works by Rembrandt at the National Gallery, and this was in addition to all the amazing works of art already in the collection of the National Gallery.  When we are done with seeing the artwork I love to visit the museum gift shops, you can always find the most interesting gifts in museum gift shops or things that you may discover you really “need”.

Metropolitan Museum of Art’s Annual Christmas Tree and Creche

When we were at the National Gallery I fell in love with some of their Christmas cards but didn’t want to schlep them home since we were traveling with carry on luggage only, but that got me thinking about card offerings from other museums,  so today I’ve put together a collection of Christmas cards available to order from some of the most prominent art museums in America and the world.  Enjoy!!!  ( Just click on the orange name of each museum to visit their shops website)
