OPM's Museum Store features a locally-focused selection from regional craftspeople, a wide selection of books, and items connected to local or state history.

As an admission-free area of the Museum, we’re equally accessible to locals seeking out unique gits and handmade products.

We’re always seeking to incorporate relevant items in our Museum Store. Whether seasonal, connected to an exhibit, or an interesting piece of history, new items are added and highlighted often. Contact us if you'd like to see your creations for sale.
