As a participant in the Blue Star Museum’s program, Spark! Imagination and Science Center is offering free admission for active duty military and up to 5 family members between Memorial Day through Labor Day 2017.
This is an opportunity for Spark! to thank our military families for their service and sacrifice. The board and staff are excited to once again be a part of Blue Star Museums.
The Blue Star Museum program is a collaboration among the National Endowment for the Arts, Blue Star Families, the Department of Defense, and more than 2,000 museums across America to offer free admission to all active duty military personnel and their families from Memorial Day through Labor Day 2016. The complete list of participating museums is available here.
“The Blue Star Museums program is a fun, free activity for military families to enjoy during the summer months,” said
NEA Chairman Jane Chu. “The program is also a great way for service member families to connect to their new communities, and it can provide a meaningful way for families to reconnect after deployment. The Blue Star Museums program is also a perfect way for the arts community to say ‘thank you’ to our service members and their families for the sacrifices they make on our behalf, every day.”
“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.”
After Labor Day, Spark! Imagination and Science Center will continue to thank active military families for their service with $1 off general admission for up to 6 family members.
