If you've walked through town this week you might have noticed the increased presence of a strange seasonal creature. Wild eyed, delirious and prone to rash impulses, approach these beings with caution: the season of the confused Christmas shopper is upon us. This affliction is highly contagious. Step away from the hurried hordes and visit one of our shops for a relaxing browse. From dino-goodies for the wee ones at World Museum, to beautiful books at the Walker and Titanic treasures at the Maritime Museum, call in and bag yourself a gift with a difference. You can even avoid the mean streets altogether and shop from the comfort of your own home with our online shop. Don’t miss our range of products inspired by Patrick Murphy’s much loved pigeons - a pigeon is for life, not just the biennial. And for the person who has everything, how about the gift of membership? Treat someone to a gift membership and they’ll get exclusive benefits for a whole year - plus you’ll be contributing to our world class venues, collections and activities, it’s the gift that never stops giving.
