Pasadena Museum of History is proud to once again join the more than 1,500 museums across the nation offering free admission this summer to active duty military personnel and their families as part of the 2012 Blue Star Museums program. The offer runs from Memorial Day (May 28) through Labor Day (September 3) as a means of showing our appreciation for those who are serving this nation.
Blue Star Museums is a collaboration among the National Endowment of the Arts, Blue Star Families, the Department of Defense, and museums in all 50 states, the District of Columbia, Puerto Rico, and American Samoa to offer free admission to families with a member serving during this time of combat in Afghanistan and Iraq, especially focusing on the approximately 1 million children who have had at least one parent deployed. This program offers these families a chance to visit museums this summer when many will have limited resources and limited time to be together.
