Eat & Shop


FORGET ALL THAT ROMANTIC nonsense about starving artists and the purity of expression that ensues. Artists, art-appreciators, culture cultivators, curious novices and even reluctant tagalongs actually build stronger civic tendencies and more robust creative inclinations when museum visits are enhanced by a gift shop with a thoughtful collection of artwork and gifts, and a cafe with simple, delicious food. 

Visit the Museum Store for a little retail therapy, Wednesday - Sunday, noon - 5 PM, in the Lightcatcher building, 250 Flora Street.

EAT at Artifacts Cafe & Wine Bar, which opens Nov. 17, 2015 in the Lightcatcher building, 250 Flora Street. Enjoy fresh, unique cuisine and wines from around the world. For more information visit
