Since the program began in 2010, the Museum has participated in the Blue Star Museums Initiative which offers free admission to all active duty military personnel and their families from Memorial Day through Labor Day each summer. The Museum has taken the effort one step further and has instituted the policy of offering free admission to active duty military year-round.
