In celebration with museum stores worldwide, the Virginia Museum of Fine Arts is pleased to announce the VMFA Shop will host the third annual Museum Store Sunday on Dec. 1. More than 1,200 museum stores across 15 countries will take part in inspiring museum visitors and members to shop inside museums and cultural institutions around the world.
“We are delighted to participate in Museum Store Sunday by offering a unique shopping experience for all,” said Alex Nyerges, VMFA Director and CEO. “This special day gives visitors and members the opportunity to participate in exclusive offerings by the Virginia Museum of Fine Arts Shop and museum stores everywhere.”
Museum stores have designated the Sunday between Black Friday and Cyber Monday as Museum Store Sunday to remind visitors about the support they provide to the institution. The VMFA Shop, which offers an array of prints, cards, and catalogues, as well as art-inspired jewelry, toys, tableware, and other gifts, will offer museum members 20 percent off and non-members 10 percent off, along with giveaways during the day. Please note, some exclusions for discounts will apply.
The VMFA Shop invites visitors and members to “Be a Patron” by supporting museum stores and their missions. Although Museum Store Sunday happens only once a year, everyone is encouraged to visit their local museums and museum stores year round.
