Local Museums Offering Free Admission to Activity Military Personnel and Their Families


by D Barnes

CHARLOTTE, N.C. -  Museums across the country are collaborating in a program called Blue Star Museums.  WCCB Rising's "Keeping it Positive" contributor Mary Curtis tells us about the project that offers free admission to all active duty military personnel, including active Reserve and National Guard and their families through Labor Day.  It covers all military ID holders and up to five family members.

Blue Star Museums is a collaboration among the National Endowment for the Arts, Blue Star Families, the Department of Defense and more than 1,800 museums across America.  Area museums include the Mint, Bechtler Museum of Modern Art, Discovery Place, Johnson C. Smith University and Levine Museum of the New South.  The Mint will also be offering free admission to any veteran with a Veterans ID card and up to five of their family members for the summer.

The Bechtler is having a celebration for Dads.  On both Saturday, June 15th and Sunday, June 16th Dads will get free admission.  In addition all dads will receive 10% off in the museum that weekend.
