Three of Louisville’s “Museum Row on Main” attractions are participating in Blue Star Museums, a collaboration between the National Endowment for the Arts (NEA), Blue Star Families, the Department of Defense and more than 1,500 museums across America to offer free admission to all active duty military personnel and their families now through Labor Day 2013.
The Frazier History Museum*, Muhammad Ali Center and KentuckyShow! at the Kentucky Center for the Arts will be waiving admission fees entirely through Labor Day, September 2, as part of the Blue Star Museum program. The free admission offer is available to active-duty military and their family members (military ID holder and up to five family members). Active duty military includes Army, Navy, Air Force, Marines, Coast Guard, and active duty National Guard and active duty Reserve members.
This is the fourth consecutive year of the Blue Star Museums program. Through this collaboration, military families have an unparalleled opportunity to visit some of the country’s finest museums in all 50 states for free.
“Blue Star Museums is collaboration between the arts and military communities," said NEA Acting Chairman Joan Shigekawa. “Our work with Blue Star Families and with more than 2,000 museums ensures that we can reach out to military families and thank them for their service and sacrifice.”
