The Gift Shop has astronomy themed items available year-round, many of them are also available online.

Update October 22, 2021: Lick Observatory’s gift shop and visitor’s center will be open Saturday October  23rd and Sunday October 24th from Noon to 4:30pm.  

We are doing a limited reopening after the SCU wildfire and as COVID conditions permit.  Dates of opening will be irregular as we work towards renewed staffing, and will be updated here.

If you are lucky enough to visit Lick Observatory in person, you can take home souvenirs of your visit from our extensive selection of Lick Observatory sweatshirts, t-shirts, mugs, and astronomical photographs as well as posters, educational toys, and other astronomy-related goodies. Snacks and hot and cold beverages are also available at the Gift Shop.

All proceeds from the gift shop go directly to support the visitor education and outreach mission of the observatory, including free public tours of the 36-inch Great Lick Refractor.

The gift shop is open during visitor’s center hours.  Shopping is also available 24/7 at our online store.

For more information, please email or call the gift shop during visitor’s center hours (Thursday – Sunday, 12 – 5 p.m.) at 408-274-5061. We will be happy to answer your questions!
