About the Ashmolean Shop

The Ashmolean Shop showcases a wide range of products inspired by and curated to accompany the Museum’s collections and renowned exhibitions. You’ll find a range of exclusive collections, as well as a carefully curated selection of books, stationery, homewares, jewellery, accessories, textiles and children’s gifts. We also take pride in supporting an ever-growing list of UK-based artisan makers. 

As well as our online shop, you can visit our recently refurbished Gift Shop at the Museum, which is open from 10am to 5pm daily.

Every purchase supports the Museum.


We source our products from responsible suppliers, favouring those who share our commitment to sustainability. We’ve partnered with Impactt Ltd to develop our ethical trading policy and sourcing practices to ensure that we take a proactive approach in establishing an ethical supply chain. We’re working with 3Adapt to quantify our carbon emissions and develop a decarbonisation pathway. So that we can reduce waste, your online orders will be sent using reused and recyclable materials. We’re also working to improve our own environmental impact by working with our suppliers to switch to more sustainable materials such as organic cotton and FSC approved paper, and by constantly reviewing packaging solutions.
