Bring the Museum Home this Holiday Season – Shop NHM

Get holiday gifts for the naturalist, the science geek or the Los Angeles aficionado on your list. One-of-a-kind gifts from NHM and the Page Museum at the La Brea Tar Pits are available at each museum's store and online.

Unique gifts, from elegant hand-crafted jewelry, educational books, toys to eco-friendly products are available for every budget. Every purchase helps support the Family of Museums' research, education, and public programsm and most of the products are linked directly to either curators' work or exhibits inside NHM and the Page Museum. There are family-friendly books by our curatorial staff on sale, for example, and plush toys that mirror the mammals on our dioramas and galleries.

You can also give the gift of membership, which means free admission to all three museums in the Natural History Family, and express entry to events like FIRST FRIDAYS, lectures and Junior Scientist classes. Museum members also enjoy the benefit of a 10% discount on all store purchases.
