About

Created in May 2010 as a collaboration between National Endowment for the Arts, Blue Star Families, the Department of Defense, and museums across the US, Blue Star Museums is an initiative that offers free admission to active-duty military personnel and their families at participating museums throughout the summer. What began as a collection of 600 participating museums has grown to more than 2,000 museums committed to recognizing and thanking these servicemen and women and providing their families with free activities during their limited time together.

As the fifth year of Blue Star Museums draws to a close, and especially on 9/11, it’s a good time to note again that the MCA is committed to honoring the public servants who put their lives on the line for strangers by providing free admission to all active military, fire, and police personnel and their families not just in the summer months but year round.
