Albright-Knox Art Gallery
Once you’re done touring world-class art at the gallery, make a bee-line for the artfully high style AK Gift Shop. Stocking an energetic and highly curated mashup of avant-garde pieces, books, children’s toys and puzzles, home accessories and whimsical jewelry, you could say this gift shop’s décor is worthy of its own spotlit white pedestal. The sculptural selection offers pieces you won’t want to leave without, and the jewelry is hand-made and utterly fanciful-chic.
Buffalo Museum of Science
Before you leave the museum, creep and crawl over to the Curiosity Shop.
