Queens Museum shutting its gift shop for retooling

By Merle Exit

The Queens Museum is keeping one of its newest exhibitions under wraps for a couple more months.

This weekend the museum will shutter its gift shop and relaunch a new retail experience sometime in April.

Visitors can take advantage of the shop’s liquidation sale, where all items are discounted at 75 percent off.

“Things are going fast here,” David Strauss, the museum’s deputy director, said. “We can’t tell you what the gift shop will be all about. You’ll just have to wait until April.”

Also on tap is the debut of a branch of the Queens Library sometime during the next couple of years.

“This will be the first branch of a public library to be housed in a museum,” Strauss said.
