By shopping at your local museum or gallery, you are actively contributing to its’ future sustainability. You’re also helping to support small businesses and start-ups, as cultural shops work closely with independent suppliers and promote artisan makers.

International Partnerships

Museum Store Sunday is managed by the Museum Store Association based in Washington, DC, in partnership with the United Kingdom’s Association for Cultural Enterprises, and the Museum Shops Association of Australia and New Zealand. Participation in Museum Store Sunday is open globally to all independently operated museum stores and non-profit retailers located at museums, zoos, aquariums, botanical gardens, historic sites, and other unique cultural institutions.

Within the Museum Store Association and its international partners, many volunteers worldwide have helped to create this annual celebration of the diverse collections and programs of museums and cultural institutions around the world, and the special roles these institutions hold in our communities.
