Thank You to the NEA for a Fantastic Blue Star Museums Season!

September 5, 2019

We’re closing the chapter on the 10th season of Blue Star Museums. And what a season it was! 

From Armed Forces Day through Labor Day, military families around the country visited more than 2,000 participating museums offering free admission through this programfrom art museums to science centers, botanic gardens, and everything in-between.

No matter where our families found themselves this summer, there was a chance to cool off and explore nearby cultural treasures on their own. Not to mention, Chapter Directors in BSF Communities planned special events and opportunities with museums far and widefrom Alaska to Florida. 

To sum it all up in one sentence: we built things, created art, went on scavenger hunts, and most definitely had a lot of fun along the way.


But this initiative wouldn’t have been possible without the National Endowment for the Arts (NEA). 

For the past 10 years, the NEA has illustrated an unwavering level of patriotism and generosity. And through this partnership, together, we’ve been able to enrich the lives and experiences of our military personnel and their families. 

“This is one of the only benefits for our family since we have been assigned away from a military installation. Our family truly enjoys being able to get out and visit places/museums. This makes our summer more enjoyable and we can do MORE with our family that we cannot usually afford to do. THANK YOU!!”
