We’re a Blue Star Museum!

May

23

As Memorial Day approaches, we are proud to announce our involvement with Blue Star Museums.

Blue Star Families is an organization gauged to support, connect, and empower military families throughout the United States. Since their founding in 2008, Blue Star Families has started 70 chapters on military bases and National Guard sites around the country, partnered with Be the Change to develop national citizen service projects engaging with military families, launched the “Books on Bases Smiles on Faces” program to bring 100,000 children’s books to military children, among countless other achievements.

For the fourth year, they are sponsoring the Blue Star Museums program which includes more than 900 museums in all 50 states and the District of Columbia. These museums will be offering free admission for military personnel and up to 5 members of their immediate family from Memorial Day weekend through Labor Day weekend.

Free admission to The Cummer will be offered through those dates to both active duty and retired military personnel  and will grant each family with a valid military ID full access to the museum and gardens, as well as any special exhibitions. We hope to see you soon!

For more information take a look at the Blue Star Museums FAQ.
