Whatever your thoughts about the Museum itself (state treasure, or politically correct snooze-fest), the Museum Shop is one of the best places in the county to purchase an exotic gift for that special someone. For adults, it offers hand-crafted objects, jewelry, notecards, and books. Many of the items are quite beautiful and very reasonably priced. Many were crafted by NJ artisans. Others relate to the state in some way, such as items crafted on the Isle of Jersey in the English Channel.
For kids, there’s a special Children’s Shop with games, puzzles, books for young readers, and souvenirs.
While you’re there, check out all of the buildings on the 100 block of State Street, not only the capitol complex (of which the Museum is a part), but also the former residences on the other side of the street, and the gorgeous Arts & Crafts structure originally built as the Trenton School of Industrial Arts, and now Thomas Edison State College.
The museum shop can be a stop if you “Walk along the Levees“. Your route takes you right along the 100 block of State Street, right past the museum.
