Cheekwood Estate & Gardens has joined museums nationwide in the Blue Star Museums initiative, a program that provides free admission to currently-serving U.S. military personnel and their families this summer.
The 2021 program will begin on Armed Forces Day, Saturday, May 15, and end on Labor Day, Sept. 6.
Blue Star Museums is an initiative of the National Endowment for the Arts in collaboration with Blue Star Families, the Department of Defense, and participating museums nationwide.
Blue Star Museums include children’s museums, art, science and history museums, zoos, gardens, lighthouses and more, and hail from all 50 states, as well as the District of Columbia, Puerto Rico and the U.S. Virgin Islands.
“We are thrilled to celebrate the launch of the Blue Star Museums 2021 program. Thank you to Cheekwood for participating in this impactful and highly anticipated program,” said Kathy Roth Douquet, CEO Blue Star Families. “Because of Cheekwood and their counterparts in the arts community, military families have the opportunity to create special memories and experience the arts again!”
The free admission program is available only for those currently serving in the United States Military — Army, Navy, Air Force, Marine Corps, Coast Guard as well as members of the Reserves, National Guard, U.S. Public Health Commissioned Corps, NOAA Commissioned Corps, and up to five family members.
