9:00 am FREE Admission for Military Families

Museum Row” attractions offer free admission to military families Memorial Day through Labor Day

Ali Center, Frazier Museum, KentuckyShow! and Science Center participate in country-wide program offering free admission to military personnel and their families this summer

Several of Louisville’s “Museum Row on Main” attractions are participating in Blue Star Museums, a collaboration between the National Endowment for the Arts (NEA), Blue Star Families, the Department of Defense and more than 1,500 museums across America to offer free admission to all active duty military personnel and their families from Memorial Day through Labor Day 2012.

The Frazier History Museum, Louisville Science Center, Muhammad Ali Center and KentuckyShow! at the Kentucky Center for the Performing Arts offer military discounts year-round, but will be waiving admission fees entirely from Memorial Day, May 28, 2012, through Labor Day, September 3, 2012 as part of the Blue Star Museum program. The free admission offer is available to active-duty military and their family members (military ID holder and up to five family members). Active duty military includes Army, Navy, Air Force, Marines, Coast Guard, and active duty National Guard and active duty Reserve members.

This is the third consecutive year of the Blue Star Museums program. Through this collaboration, military families have an unparalleled opportunity to visit some of the country’s finest museums in all 50 states for free.

“This is both an opportunity to thank military families for their service and sacrifice, as well as a chance to create connections between museums and these families that will continue throughout the year,” said NEA Chairman Rocco Landesman. “Especially for families with limited time together, those on a limited budget, and ones that have to relocate frequently, Blue Star Museums offers an opportunity to enjoy one another and become more fully integrated into a community.”
