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! Participating museums across the country offer free family admission for active duty military families from Memorial Day through Labor Day. Download our Parent Toolkit to prepare for your visit.
Last year, over 900,000 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. Click here to find participating Blue Star Museums!

The program is a collaboration among the National Endowment for the Arts, Blue Star Families, the Department of Defense and thousands of museums across the country. Leadership support is provided by the MetLife Foundation through Blue Star Families.
