Freebie Friday:Free Museum Visits for Military Families This Summer

The Getty Museum of Los Angeles is participating

Once again, the National Endowment for the Arts has partnered with Blue Star Families to offer free museum visits to the immediate families of the brave men and women who are serving in our military. Happily the number of institutions participating this year has ballooned to over 1300 museums in all 50 States, Puerto Rico and American Samoa.

The range of museums participating is impressive and spans the nation's top art museums, children's museum and those that cover sports, history and hobbies. Included on the list this year are the Art Institute of Chicago, The Museum of Modern Art (New York City), the Ocean Star Offshore Drilling Museum (Galveston, TX), the Museo de Los Americos (Denver), the National Navy-UDT SEAL Museum (Fort Pierce, FL) and the Academy of Natural Sciences (Philadelphia, PA).

Sorry, the offer does not apply to veterans. Family members must be either the spouse or the child of a current member of the U.S. military. The freebie runs from Memorial Day through Labor Day; military families can go to an unlimited number of museums during that period. For complete information, click here.
