Dahesh Museum Gift Shop Reopens July 7th

After being closed since February for renovations following the winter weather damage, the Gift Shop will reopen its doors on July 7th. Make sure to stop by to see our new selection of exquisite Turkish rugs and embroidered tapestries, in addition to our books, beautiful home accessories and jewelry that are inspired by the Museum’s permanent collection. We also have a special treat as part of our celebration of Dr. Dahesh’s birthday (June 1st) and the Museum’s 20th anniversary—all items will be 20 percent off through Christmas.

The Gift Shop is open Tuesday through Saturday, 10 a.m. to 5 p.m.

Currently a Museum without Walls

We are enjoying our offices and elegant Museum Gift Shop in the bustling lower Manhattan neighborhood of Hudson Square. This Website extends our mission of education in 19th-century academic art, informing our friends of exhibitions organized by the Museum and other collaborations, and will offer online resources that can expand the discussion about this period of art history.

This elegant 1899 townhouse is the ideal environment for the Museum’s collection, special exhibitions and programs, and we are eager to share it with you. Renovation plans for the building are currently being reviewed, and further updates will be posted on our website.
