Around half of the products available are entirely bespoke to the museum, including those inspired by the cursive Arabic script, or Thuluth, that decorates the façade. These special collections celebrate both Arabic calligraphy and the 3D-printing technology used in the museum’s construction. In addition, there is a range of products, such as keychains, magnets, tote bags, coin purses, pouches, scarfs, books, and coffee sets.
Visitors can purchase clothes made from recycled materials, high-quality educational games inspired by the future, and limited-edition creations by local Emirati designers. For younger visitors, gifts for children inspired by the Future Heroes exhibit can also be found at the shop.
