Strataca is one of more than 2,000 museums across America to offer free admission to military personnel and their families this summer in collaboration with the National Endowment for the Arts, Blue Star Families, and the Department of Defense
Strataca is offering free museum admission to military personnel and their families this summer as part of the Blue Star Museum program. It runs from Memorial Day, May 26, 2014 through Labor Day, September 1, 2014.
The Blue Star Museum program has become a tradition at Strataca. Last year, about 1,500 active military men and women and their families visited Strataca during the Blue Star Museums program. Strataca receives no compensation for participating, but is pleased to do so as a way to honor the service and sacrifice of military members and their families.
“As we kick off our fifth year of Blue Star Museums, more museums than ever are part of this military appreciation program,” said NEA Acting Chairman Joan Shigekawa.
“Blue Star Museums has grown into a nationally recognized program that service members and their families look forward to each year,” said Blue Star Families Chief Executive Officer Kathy Roth?Douquet. “It helps bring our local military and civilian communities together, and offers families fun and enriching activities in their home towns. We are thrilled with the continued growth of the program and the unparalleled opportunities it offers.”
Museums in all 50 states, the District of Columbia, Puerto Rico, and American Samoa are taking part in the initiative. To see all participating museums, visit arts.gov/national/blue?star?museums.
