The nation’s active duty military personnel, including the National Guard and Reserve, and their families, can visit the Lyman Museum for free from Memorial Day, May 26, through Labor Day, September 1, 2014.

The Blue Star Museums program provides military families an opportunity to enjoy the nation’s cultural heritage and learn more about their community.

“We’re really excited to be participating again in Blue Star Museums,” said Rachel Pierson, Membership and Development Associate for the Lyman Museum.  “It’s a privilege to offer free admission to members of the military and their families and it’s a great opportunity for them to learn more about the local community and the resources it holds.  The Lyman Museum really has something for everyone.  We’ve got science, culture, and history exhibits as well as guided tours of the historic Lyman Mission House.”

This year, more than 2,000 museums in all 50 states, the District of Columbia, Puerto Rico, and American Samoa are taking part in the initiative.  The complete list of participating museums is available at arts.gov/national/blue-star-museums.

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