Utah Blue Star Museums
Blue Star Museums is a partnership among Blue Star Families (an organization which supports military families and increases awareness of the unique challenges of military life), the National Endowment for the Arts and the Utah Division of Arts & Museums to offer free admission to military personnel and their families from Memorial Day, May 31, 2010, through Labor Day, September 6, 2010.
“There have always been wonderful examples of partnerships between museums and military installations, but the scale of this gift from the museum communities to military families is thrilling,” said Blue Star Families Chairman Kathy Roth-Douquet.
In addition to a list of museums participating in Utah, go to artsandmuseums.utah.gov and click on the “Blue Star Museums Utah” box. You’ll find a link to a blog where people tell about their experience.
We hope Utah Families will explore as many museums as possible this summer.
