We’re sharing some of our favorite books and gifts that are available for mail order while the Carlos Museum is closed to the public.

How to order

Please email your request and/or general questions with your address and phone number to Bookshop Manager Mark Burell at, and you will receive a call to process your order. Most orders for books in stock will be shipped within five business days. Free curbside pickup options are now available three days a week by appointment. We are also usually able to deliver free to local addresses within a four mile radius of the museum.

If a book is temporarily sold out, it may take longer to fulfill orders due to current shipping delays, but orders will be processed as quickly as possible. Purchases support the Carlos Museum, so stock up today!
