Museum Store Sunday

Museums are very important resources in the community, providing accessible experiences and programs in a variety of subjects, from the arts to science to history and so much more. Today is Museum Store Sunday and if you’re starting your holiday shopping, please consider supporting your local museums. Museums carry unique gifts, many exclusive to that particular institution.

Melissa Lew jewelry can be found at a number of museums across the country. To find the one closest to you, please click here.

Happy shopping and thank you for shopping with purpose!

Now Available at City Museum

Melissa Lew jewelry is now available at City Museum in St. Louis!

As an artist, I love that the City Museum promotes creativity and imagination. It was built in a hundred year old warehouse in downtown St. Louis from repurposed pieces of old cities to build miles of tunnels, bridges, secret passages, and more.

While you’re there, you have to check out the praying mantis statue on the rooftop. It was originally commissioned by Missouri Botanical Garden and is 3,000 pounds and 24 feet tall!

To plan your visit, please go to for more information.
