Mesa Verde Museum Association Stores
The Mesa Verde stores are operated by the Mesa Verde Museum Association, a nonprofit organization partnered with Mesa Verde National Park since 1930. Mesa Verde Museum Association, in cooperation with the National Park Service and Mesa Verde National Park, assists and supports various interpretive programs, research activities and visitor services.
The association provides educational and interpretive material to visitors of Mesa Verde National Park through an active publishing program and the operation of retail stores in the Mesa Verde Visitor and Research Center, the Chapin Mesa Archeological Museum, the Colorado Welcome Center in Cortez, and their online store. These resources enhance the visitor experience and proceeds from sales are donated to the park's interpretive, research and education programs.

Contrary to popular belief, the Ancestral Puebloan people of Mesa Verde did not disappear. They migrated south to New Mexico and Arizona, and became today’s modern pueblo people.
