Join us on the third Sunday of each month for Family Free Nights. The museum is open until 8:00 pm, and admission from 5:30 pm to 8:00 pm is FREE. Please note: this event is intended for families with children ages 0-12. Parent supervision is required at all times
Through Museums for All, those receiving food assistance (SNAP benefits) can gain reduced admission, $3.00 per person, simply by presenting their SNAP EBT (Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program Electronic Benefit Transfer) card and picture ID. Payment must be made using cash or credit card. Up to four people per EBT card may be admitted at this reduced fee. This discount applies to regular museum admission only, and does not apply to special events or programs.
(Normally Armed Forces Day – 3rd Saturday in May – through Labor Day. However, due to special grant support, for 2024 we are offering it all year long!)
Free admission for active-duty military personnel and their families (including National Guard and Reserve). Valid military ID required. Blue Star Museums is a collaborative program of the National Endowment for the Arts, Blue Star Families and the U.S. Department of Defense.
