About Us

The Curatoreum are independent book and gift stores based in Canberra at the National Portrait Gallery and at the
National Arboretum

With over 19,000 titles online and in-store, we have a large focus on art, botany, design and photography, while also offering an extensive range of  biography, history, literature and children's picture books. 

With over 22 years book buying experience, the owners pride themselves on finding the hard to find and obscure title. We import from  overseas on a weekly basis and are constantly expanding our database to offer a wider range of literature, art, botany and design.

The stores also offer unique gifts from Australian designer-makers in jewellery, glass, wood and textiles - while also stocking quirky and contemporary gifts.
