Museum Store

Architecturally warm and inviting, the Roanoke Museum Store presents Native American items from the past and present, illustrating how different artists interpret cultural traditions and art forms. On the museum’s Second Level, the store features jewelry, textiles, and other works by Native artisans; souvenirs; and children’s books and toys. The name "Roanoke" reflects the importance of waterways to Native commerce, a reference to the shells once used as currency by local Native peoples.
