Be A Patron And Shop At Museum Stores



PHILADELPHIA, Sept. 28, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- The Museum Store Association (MSA) is launching an exciting international annual event and shopping campaign for consumers, Museum Store Sunday. Taking place on Sunday, November 26, Museum Store Sunday will offer visitors and consumers inspired experiences and shopping opportunities provided by stores at museums and other cultural non-profit attractions.

In partnership with the United Kingdom's Association for Cultural Enterprises and the Museum Shops Association of Australia and New Zealand, MSA's Museum Store Sunday aims to be the global annual day to Be a Patron -- shop conscientiously and support museum stores and their missions worldwide.

"Museum Store Sunday gives people a chance to support local businesses, give back to the community through local non-profit museum, support good causes, find unique holiday gifts, and enjoy an entertaining and educational experience at favorite museums, all at the same time."

More than 300 museums?from three continents, five countries, and 47 states?are slated to partake in Museum Store Sunday with special events and promotions. For a complete list of participating museums and institutions, and for more information, visit www.museumstoresunday.org.
