Blue Star Museums is a program that provides free admission to over 2,000 museums nationwide to active duty military personnel (including National Guard and Reserve) and their families.
In 2021, the program begins on Armed Forces Day, Saturday, May 15th, 2021, and ends on Labor Day, Monday, September 6th, 2021.
The military ID holder can bring five family members with him or her, and those family members can include a spouse or child, aunts, uncles, grandparents, etc.
If the military member is deployed the spouse can still participate in the free program. Read the FAQ for more details, including the documentation you’ll need to bring.
