2013 Blue Star Museums Map

For the fourth year now, Blue Star Museums, a collaboration among the National Endowment for the Arts, Blue Star Families, the Department of Defense, and a record-breaking 2,000 museums across America, will be offering free admission to the nation’s active duty military personnel including National Guard and Reserve and their families from Memorial Day through Labor Day 2013.

The free admission program is available to any bearer of a Geneva Convention common access card (CAC), a DD Form 1173 ID card, or a DD Form 1173-1 ID card, which includes active duty U.S. military - Army, Navy, Air Force, Marines, Coast Guard, National Guard and Reserve, as well as members of the U.S. Public Health Service Commissioned Corps, NOAA Commissioned Corps - and up to five family members.

For the third year, we are mapping the location of the participating museums - see the Blue Star Museum Map page in our menu bar at the top.

We here at Where's URL think that finding places on a map is quicker than looking at a list of city names, so we are going to map as many of the Blue Star Museums as we can.   Of the 2,000 museums that are participating this year, we have mapped over 800 of them, and we'll add more as soon as we can.

The most up-to-date list of participating museums is on the Blue Star Museum official website, so be sure to check there before you go, or if you want more choices than our map indicates.
