Blue Star Museums
Whether you want to blast off at a science museum, take a walk through nature, encounter animals at the aquarium or meet your heroes at a historic site, Blue Star Museums can help you create memories!
It's Family Adventure Time!
Participating museums across the country offer free family admission for active duty military families from Armed Forces Day through Labor Day.
Start planning for next summer!
Last year, over 680,000 military families visited Blue Star Museums. Our Chapter Directors plan special events and opportunities with museums from Alaska to Florida and points in between. We build things, create art, go on scavenger hunts and have fun together all summer long.
