What We Do
Eastern National operates museum stores at more than 170 units of the National Park Service, across 33 states, the District of Columbia, Puerto Rico, and the United States Virgin Islands. Each store is a reflection and an extension of the interpretive themes of its location, making each store unique. We work with more than 3,000 vendors to supply our stores with educational products that enhance visitor experiences, and develop custom merchandise that is specific to the sites we serve.
We also partner with other federal, state, and local entities, such as the U.S. Forest Service, the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, the state of North Carolina, the City of Parkers Crossroads, and the Robert Russa Moton Museum, and provide a variety of services based on our partners’ needs.
Eastern National provides a variety of services to our partners above and beyond our museum stores and publications program, including tours, and fee collection services.
Passport To Your National Parks
Since its inception in 1986, the Passport To Your National Parks® program has introduced millions of visitors to the national park system. Our trademarked, best-selling program consists of a guidebook, an annual series of commemorative stamps, a companion app, and collectible cancellations. Collect the famous ink cancellations at nearly every park in the system while experiencing America’s cultural, historical, and natural treasures.
Producing up to 10 custom publications per year, Eastern National works with our partners to produce high-quality products that are extensions of our sites’ educational and interpretive programs. They allow visitors to expand on the knowledge they gained while visiting, provide an in-depth look at a site’s theme or purpose, and help visitors take their experiences home with them.
Eastern National offers custom product development services to its partners. Exclusive merchandise, including apparel, replicas, educational and interpretive products, and publications are developed by our experienced team, according to our partners’ specifications. Branding, logo design, and marketing services are also available. Our relationships with over 3,000 vendors allow us to source domestically and locally made products, enhancing visitor experiences at our sites.
Eastern National has three e-commerce sites that sell national park products primarily throughout the United States, with a growing presence in Canada and Europe. With a client base of more than 25,000 and an online catalog of over 3,000 products our online stores are the “go to” websites for park lovers, the National Park Service and park partners.
