What is a Museum Store?
We know that museums are a trusted resource to their communities. Did you know that Museum Stores are dedicated directly to their parent institutions, operating under section 501(c)3 of the Internal Revenue Code? Products sold in Museum Stores reflect the mission and programs of the museum or cultural institution in which they are housed. The items in Museum Stores are curated just like the works displayed in their respective institutions. Revenues generated by Museum Stores go directly into the operating budgets of the parent organizations, providing economic sustainability for the museum and cultural engagement for the community.
