Blue Star Museums is a program that offers free admission to museums for all active duty, National Guard and Reserve military personnel and their families from Memorial Day through Labor Day
There are currently millions of active duty, Reserve and National Guard Service members serving our country. Each of them leaves behind a family when they deploy – a family that participates in the service members’ sacrifice but is often overlooked by government and civilian organizations. And because we in military service make up only one percent of the country’s total population, most Americans don’t have first-hand knowledge of the military experience.
Blue Star Families was formed in December 2008 by a group of military spouses to raise the awareness of the challenges of military family life with our civilian communities and leaders. BSF has grown to include spouses and families from all services and all walks of life, including National Guard and Reserve, as well as veterans and civilians who strongly support us.
The Blue Star Museums Program is off and running! Military families now have access to 1,800 art exhibits, science centers, and amazing museums all over the nation. Find a museum near you.
