Minnesota Blue Star Museums 2020 – Free Admission for Military Families


In 2019, the Minnesota Historical Society joined over 50 other Minnesota museums to participate in the summer Blue Star Museums program. This national program provides free admission to active-duty military personnel and their families each summer, since 2010. While the 2019 program has come to an end, check back in the spring for participating 2020 museums. Blue Star Museums 2020 will begin on Armed Forces Day, May 16, 2020.

A quick check of the National Endowment for the Arts Website showed that there were over 40 participating museums in Minnesota and 16 in the Twin Cities Metro in 2019. We’ll update our 2020 list in the spring.
