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!



Local artist Jacqueline Robins has collaborated with the MOV to produce these unique platters and mugs using images from the Museum of Vancouver's collection, including street-scapes, maps and reproductions of transit tickets. No two are the same!



Local designers Cabin+Cub have produced these cool pins and coaster sets inspired by artifacts in the MOV Collection, including animal images from city banners, and reproductions of the Vancouver Bicycle Club, Vancouver Roller Rink, and Woodward's Stag Council crests.



MOV branded and "of Vancouver" waterproof tote bags. Available exclusively at MOV.
