Over one million people visit our museums and engage with our stores and staff. We are delighted to be frontline ambassadors for the de Young and Legion of Honor—ensuring our visitors receive welcoming and enhanced experiences as well as knowledgeable and meaningful engagement from their museum and store visit.
Dedicated directly to, and an integral department of the Fine Arts Museums, the de Young and Legion of Honor Museum Stores operate as non-profit retailers under section 501(c)3 of the Internal Revenue Code and are a key earned-revenue department of the museums. Revenues generated by our stores are deposited into the operating budgets of the Museums, providing cultural engagement for our communities and economic sustainability for our institution.
Locally rooted, internationally engaged, we connect each visitor with the power of art to inform, inspire and enrich their lives with the special products we feature in our stores.
Reflecting the diversity of our Museums’ collections, the Museum Stores of the de Young and Legion of Honor educate and serve our audiences with unique, quality products, significant publications, and exhibition-related merchandise that enable our visitors to “take home” a part of the museum for their enjoyment and ongoing memory of their experience.
