On Sunday, November 29, 2020, for the fourth consecutive year, more than 1,400 museum stores representing all 50 states and the District of Columbia, 23 countries, and five continents will offer inspired shopping at museums and cultural institutions during Museum Store Sunday. The Santa Barbara Maritime Museum gift shop is thrilled to be joining with museum stores worldwide to participate in this special event by offering the same special deals on quality gifts filled with inspiration and educational value, with all purchases again supporting SBMM and the craftspeople who create many of the gifts we sell.
Blue Anderson, President of the Museum Store Association Board of Directors and Director of Visitor Services for the Columbia River Maritime Museum, said, “This year it’s more important than ever to support local cultural institutions—many of which have been closed for months due to COVID-19 restrictions. On Museum Store Sunday, we encourage shoppers to ‘Be a Patron’ at their favorite museum stores…”
AND THIS YEAR, ESPECIALLY, PLEASE REMEMBER the Santa Barbara Maritime Museum on December 1, 2020, Giving Tuesday. The first $25,000 donated to SBMM will be matched dollar-for-dollar by one of our donors! You can find out more about the many ways in which you can support SBMM here.
