Gift Shop

The same time, effort, and attention to detail we place in each of our casts is also given to every gift shop item, so you can expect nothing but the best here. They are either made in house (earrings and keychains) or made locally so we can insure the highest quality available. We offer a variety of clothing, collectables, and novelty items to choose from. Sizes in clothing range from infant (6 months) to XXXL, but colors and sizes vary by availability and our yearly whims, so please contact to see what we have in stock, or to place a custom order. If you want custom keychains or earrings, that can easily be done upon request. Again, just contact us for more information.

National Museums of Kenya items are made by their casting department in Kenya (keychains and mini fossil crania), or for them by us (clothing items) and the profit from these items goes directly to their casting and research programs, so as always, thanks for supporting NMK as well!

T-Shirt with drawings

These shirts feature our classic design with an exquisitely detailed line drawing of a human, chimpanzee, gorilla, orangutan, and siamang skull--anterior views on the front, posterior views on the back of a white shirt. An eye catching, but classy shirt. Adult sizes small-xxxl.



Colored T-shirt with drawing

A slight twist on our classic design above, these shirts feature what might be called a negative of that original design. These shirts are striking in their contrast with a white version of the line drawn skulls on black or various colored backgrounds. Anterior views appear on the front of the shirts with posterior views on the back as with the classic drawing shirt. Also available in Glow-in-the-Dark. Check to see if our yearly whims can provide in the size you need.



Ladies Colored or Classy Black T-shirt with drawing

Same design as described directly above, but now produced in a ladies cut. We now offer two varieties.

The first (right) is a longer shirt with a tapered, more fitting cut and is made of lightweight stretchy fabric (Bella brand). An excellent shirt for ladies who prefer a more fitted feel and look.

The second (left) is a Bella Missy Fit, for those preferring not such a tight fit, but still a ladies cut. This is more like a standard T but with a bit of a woman
