Description: Retail stores play central roles in museum operations.
Most museum managers and their boards or tribal councils recognize
stores' revenue potential. But stores can also help serve the
museum's educational mission, support perpetuation and
revitalization of traditional arts, and impact audiences beyond the
museum's doors. Utilizing expert perspectives and examples from
diverse museum stores this course will explain why a museum store
should not be just a "gift shop" and will present guidance on
inventory management, buying and pricing, retail display, staff
training and other administrative issues faced by museum store
