MOV Retail Collection
Take nostalgia home with you!
The MOV has partnered with local businesses to breathe new life into artifacts and make it possible for culture lovers to take history home with them.
We're thinking out of the box - or, in this case, out of the gift shop. In an initiative that goes beyond the traditional approach of cultural institutions of hosting a gift shop on location, the MOV has created a model that works directly with local retailers to both stock and produce items inspired by the MOV collection.
Select merchandise is now available for sale at the Museum of Vancouver, where MOV Members receive discounts!
"of Vancouver" Soft Cotton T-Shirts (charcoal) and Waterproof Tote Bags (charcoal and bright pink) available exclusively at MOV.
Multilayered wooden panel art - inspired by artifacts in the MOV Collection - hand painted in acrylic, finished with a semi-gloss varnish and displayed beneath glass in a frame - ready to hang! More designs to choose from at Wood City Designs
Buy vintage images - inspired by artifacts in the MOV Collection - reproduced by Hambleton Fine Art Services on canvas or acrylic.
