Museum Shop & Café
No visit to the Mead is complete without a browse in the Museum Shop, where a range of affordable publications and souvenirs await your delectation — and where Friends of the Mead Art Museum receive a discount! Choose from original publications, postcards, notecards, and posters exclusive to the Mead.
Within the Shop, Mead Vintage provides a unique shopping experience. A regularly changing selection of locally sourced collectibles offers all the fun of shopping for conventional museum souvenirs without the expense, or the ecological and ethical concerns, associated with purchasing something newly mass-produced. From classic kitsch to midcentury modern, from streamlined Art Deco to romantic Victorian, Mead Vintage has something for everyone.
While you're with us, be sure to enjoy some refreshments. The Mead Café offers espresso-based Fair Trade coffee drinks, black and green teas, hot chocolate, herbal infusions, and sparkling water, along with a changing assortment of fresh-baked muffins, and the museum's signature chocolate chunk cookie. Relax with your snack at a café table, where the music isn't too loud and the wi-fi is always complimentary.
Amherst College students and employees are welcome to use our on-campus currency, AC Dollars. At this time, we are temporarily unable to process credit card payments.
