Military Families Play Free This Summer at Missoula Children’s Museum
Thanks to the Blue Star Museums program, children of military families can get into the Missoula Children’s Museum for free until Labor Day. This national program is for active military members only, however, the fantastic local folks at the Children’s Museum are extending this offer to families of Veterans as well.
Here are the details from the Program & Outreach Coordinator at the museum.
Military families can play at Children’s Museum Missoula for free this summer. This local family destination is pleased to offer complimentary admission to active members and their families from Memorial Day through Labor Day as part of the Blue Star Museums program.
The Blue Star Museums program is a partnership between Blue Star Families, an organization committed to supporting, connecting and empowering military families, and the National Endowment for the Arts, Joining Forces, MetLife Foundation and museums across the country. The program is a national effort to show appreciation to our military community. There are over 2000 museums involved in this year’s initiative.
Participating museums provide free admission to active military members, including National Guard and Reserve, and up to five family members. Although the national program is for active military members only, Children’s Museum Missoula will also be offering free admission to Veterans and their immediate family members. Military families wishing to visit the museum can present their military ID or Veteran ID to receive entrance to the museum.
