Kim Zies and Rachelle Rodriguez of the Children's Museum of Denver at Marsico Campus. Customers still want to play with and touch and feel products before buying them, the associate director of guest services said.

n order to compete with the growing number of online retailers and all the bells and whistles they offer, Tiffany Kocurko, store director, Great Lakes Science Center, Cleveland, Ohio, said the first step is to create awareness for your museum’s online store. “People won’t shop it if they don’t know it’s there,” she said. The center’s website features images of the store and its products, and describes all of the fun things visitors can find at the store—which encourages them to shop when they visit.

In addition, Kocurko said you need to have an assortment of unique items that support your mission and objectives. “We include messaging on the store’s home page that tells shoppers that their purchase supports the center,” she said.
