On Sunday, November 27, 2022, Ranch Dressing and the Museum Store at Desert Caballeros Western Museum join more than 1,800 Museum Stores representing all fifty states, 24 countries, and five continents to offer relaxing, inspired shopping inside your favorite museums and cultural institutions.
#MuseumStoreSunday offers a special shopping experience in one-of-a kind stores, showcasing broad assortments of highly curated, unique, mission-specific gifts. From books to jewelry to children’s products to home accessories and gourmet food, there is something for everyone. Shop knowing you are supporting the missions and programs of each participating museum and cultural institution.
Why Museum Store Sunday? Museum stores perform integral and multi-faceted work for their institutions — from earning income and extending mission-related programs, to visitor engagement and educational outreach through store products, programs, and experiences.
Dedicated directly to and an integral department of their institutions, museum stores operate as non-profit retailers under section 501(c)3 of the Internal Revenue Code and are a key earned income revenue department of the museum.
Revenues generated by museum stores are deposited into the operating budgets of the parent organizations, providing economic sustainability for the museum and cultural engagement for the community.
