Cantigny Park invites everyone to get a jump on holiday gift giving and support local museums and cultural institutions on Museum Store Sunday on November 29.
The worldwide shopping event is sponsored by the Museum Store Association (MSA). More than 1,400 stores are involved, representing all 50 states and 22 countries. Among participating stores is the Cantigny Shop, located in the Cantigny Park Visitors Center.
Cantigny will offer 10% off all items on Museum Store Sunday, excluding sale merchandise. Cantigny members receive an additional 10% off. The Cantigny Shop’s first 25 customers will receive a free Cantigny tote bag and free parking pass for future use. Those who spend $25 or more can choose a bonus thank you gift—a hummingbird ornament or Battle Ready! Deluxe Strike Force Playset. All customers may enter a raffle to win a one-year Cantigny membership or a basket of best-selling merchandise.
Shopping hours on November 29 are 9 am to 5 pm. Cantigny’s regular $5 parking fee will be waived for those who mention Museum Store Sunday at the entry gate.
Museum Store Sunday, now in its fourth year, is the global annual day to “Be a Patron” through conscientious shopping that supports museum stores and their missions. For more information and a current list of museum store participants, visit www.museumstoresunday.org.
Cantigny’s regular daily parking fee is $5 per car. Parking is free on the first Wednesday of every month. On Saturdays and Sundays, May through September, parking is $10. The $10 rate also applies on Memorial Day, July 4th and Labor Day. Parking is free at all times for Cantigny Park members, Honor Club members, and those attending ticketed events or other fee-based programs.
