Blue Star Museums-Free Admission For Military Families From Memorial Day Through Labor Day

Operation Appreciation-Blue Star FamiliesMore than 600 museums across the US will be offering to free admission to active duty military and their families this summer as part of Operation Appreciation.

The Blue Star Families and the National Endowment for the Arts partnered to create this opportunity for families to enjoy everything from local children's hands on museums to those that feature art, history and science.

“The Blue Star Museums initiative is a tangible expression of appreciation to service members and their families,“ said Barbara Thompson, director of the Pentagon’s office of family policy."

Each museum will offer free admission to an active duty military member and up to 5 members of their family. Special exhibits within the museum may not be included in the free admission. Families should check with the museum they plan to attend beforehand to make sure they know if there may be charges for those exhibits.

In Northern Virginia some of the free museums and attractions include:


Carlyle House Historic Park
Alexandria, VA

Frank Lloyd Wright's Pope Leighey House
Alexandria VA

Manassas Museum System
Manassas VA

National Air and Space Museum-Udvar-Hazy Center
Chantilly VA

National Museum of the Marine Corps
Triangle, VA

If you live in Northern Virginia or are traveling to the area for summer vacation make sure you take advantage of free admission to these and many more local museums.

Cindy, let patriotism reign on, especially this coming Memorial weekend.

What a great idea. Living in an Air Force town we have all kinds of free "days" for our Veterans. How can one not appreciate the sacrifice these men and women make to protect our country and our families?

The program for military families sounds like a worth while program.

Good luck and success.

Cindy - Operation Appreciation is a wonderful idea and the least we can do for active duty military and their families! They deserve that and so much more!

Posted by Kristine Ginsberg, NJ Home Stager (Elite Staging and Redesign, LLC) over 7 years ago

Kristine-in our area we have a lot of deployed families and having way to save a little money with a local staycation is important.

Hi Cindy - Is it just my computer or did you intentionally list the Virginia museums in another language?

Peggy-your computer.  Looks fine on mine :-)
