Have you and your family taken advantage of this summer’s Blue Star Museums program yet?  There is still time to gain free entry to 1,800 art exhibits, science centers and museums all over the nation.  This benefit is given to all active duty, National Guard and Reserve military personnel and their families from Memorial Day through Labor Day.

To see all of the possible destinations, check out their Interactive Map where you’ll find a state by state listing of all participating museums.  You can even earn points towards rewards if you “check in” each of your visits on their web site!

This benefit is brought to you by a partnership between the National Endowment for the Arts, Blue Star Families, Joining Forces, MetLife Foundation and hundreds of museums across the country.

Get your students back into their learning mode by enjoying an educational family outing . . . for free!
