More than 1,600 museums offer military families free admission
Los Angeles Times
Museums around the country will offer free admission to all active-duty military personnel and their families through Labor Day, Sept. 3.
The program is a partnership between the Department of Defense, the National Endowment for the Arts and Blue Star Families, a nonprofit group providing support for military families. The museum program was started in 2010 and is now in its third year.
To obtain free admission, visitors must present a valid piece of identification showing active duty in the military or National Guard and Reserves. The identification is good for up to five family members.
Spouses of deployed personnel are eligible but must present valid identification for active duty military family members. This year, more than 1,600 museums around the country are expected to participate in the program, according to Blue Star Families.
