Whitehead Memorial Museum Gift Shop
Finding the right gift for special person can sometimes be a challenge. You want to find a gift that will be enjoyed and not “regifted”.
When visiting the Whitehead Memorial Museum, many visitors from out of town take advantage of the many items we have in our gift shop. However, not too many locals shop at our gift shop. We have a great collection of history books.
Do you know why Del Rio was once called the City of Roses, or the City of Presidents, or now, the Queen City? You can find out in Doug Braudaway’s “Del Rio Queen City of the Rio Grande”, which is very informative on the history of our great city. We also have books on Dr. Brinkley, Judge Roy Bean, and various cookbooks, such as “Recipes from Archives of a Texas Ranching Family”, “WMM Recipe Roundup”, and “Campus Guide to Outdoor Cooking” . We also have a variety of Mexican blankets, pottery, unique children’s toys.
The museum gift shop is the only place where you can get a Val Verde County Commemorative Blanket, which is embroidered with many of the historic sites of Val Verde County.
Now is the best time to shop and save at your Whitehead Memorial Museum and to bring your family and friends to visit the building size Cadena Nativity. Don’t forget to join us at every month’s First Friday event with free admission and also Christmas Under the Stars on December 12.
