Museums ~ News ~ Blue Star Museums in Rhode Island

The Washington Post reports that the National Endowment for the Arts (NEA) has joined with Blue Star Families, a non-profit for military families to create Blue Star Museums, a summer-long program that offers free admission to participating museums for military personnel and their families.

More than 600 museums nationwide are participating. Participating museums in Rhode Island are:

Museum of Art, Rhode Island School of Design, Providence
Museum of Natural History and Planetarium: Roger Williams Park, Providence
South County Museum: Narragansett

According to the Post, "The free admission, also available to active duty reservists and active duty National Guard, will be offered from Memorial Day through Labor Day" and is available for active members of the military and their families, including active duty National Guard and Reservists.

I hope to see even more Rhody museums on this list before the summer ends!
