Alcatraz Island Stores

No trip to Alcatraz is complete without a stop at the Cellhouse Store, featuring a wide selection of merchandise to help you understand the island’s fascinating history and commemorate your visit. As a “museum store,” this extraordinary shop showcases historic artifacts from the federal penitentiary years (1934-1963), including authentic inmate handcuffs and shackles, correctional officer badges and blackjacks, and even implements from the famous 1962 breakout. The store also offers realistic replicas of prison-era paraphernalia for purchase as truly unique mementos.

Also, be sure to visit our bookstores in the Barracks (Building 64, the large structure that visitors first encounter as they arrive on the island), located across from the ferry dock and next to the Theater. Browse interpretive items that highlight the resources on Alcatraz and across all the Golden Gate National Parks. Your purchases at Alcatraz Island stores help support our conservation and education programs.
