NEA Allows Free Art Museum Admissions for Military Families

(5-26-10) The National Endowment for the Arts has helped organize a summer-long program called Blue Star Museums that will offer free museum admission to active-duty military personnel and their families from Memorial Day (May 31) through Labor Day (Sept. 6) "to show their appreciation for those who are serving this nation." The effort has been coordinated with Blue Star Families, a support organization "by military families for military families," and so far 600 U.S. museums of all kinds and in all 50 states have signed on.
