Gearing Up for Blue Star Museums 2017!

April 4, 2017

Get ready to plan your next Blue Star Families Adventure!

We are actively working with our partner, the National Endowment for the Arts, to sign up museums across the country to participate in the Blue Star Museums program this summer. Museums from Maine to Hawaii and Alaska to Florida, participate by opening their doors for FREE to military families from Memorial Day to Labor Day. In addition, our volunteer Chapter Directors are working hard to plan special events at many museums including special tours, art activities and family fun. Keep your eyes open for an event near you!

 In the meantime, enjoy this Family Fun activity sheet to get ready for summer adventures. It has a map to color, a word search and a special edition museum MadLib!

 Stay engaged with us as you visit museums and create art by tagging your photos with #bluestarmuseums and sharing on our Facebook! We can’t wait to see where you will go this summer!

 Make sure to check out our Parent Toolkit with resources to plan a museum. There are fun games to play at museums and lots of how-to information that will be helpful whether you plan to visit an art museum, a zoo or a science center.
