Oklahoma City is home to several diverse museums with treasure-filled gift shops where you’ll find everything from cowboy couture apparel to your own Chihuly sculpture.
Below are a few suggestions on ways to safely shop from only-in-OKC museum gift shops this holiday season.
National Cowboy and Western Heritage Museum
After you've spent the day learning about Oklahoma's cowboy culture and rich Western heritage, mosey on over to browse the gift shop.

Oklahoma City National Memorial & Museum
The bombing of the Alfred P. Murrah Federal Building on April 19, 1995, is a heartbreaking chapter in OKC’s story. The gift shop at the museum features items that commemorative the 25th anniversary year, in addition to books, apparel, and bundled gifts that represent the Oklahoma Standard and honors those who were killed, those who survived and those changed forever. You can shop at the Memorial Store online and have the gifts delivered to you or directly to loved ones.
Mix-Tape at Factory Obscura
Factory Obscura's gift shop is quirky and magical. Choose from an abundance of apparel, accessories, prints, and stickers with unconventional designs, or shop the collection of hand-made items from local Factory Obscura artists. The take-home DIY kits are also a hit—ranging from shimmer mosaic kits to invisible ink tye-dye kits. Shop in-person or online and have the gifts delivered to your doorstep.
