In late May, the Bullock Texas State History Museum announced the launch of Blue Star Museums, a collaboration among the National Endowment for the Arts, Blue Star Families, the Department of Defense and museums across America, to offer free admission to the nation’s active duty military personnel including National Guard and Reserve and their families from Memorial Day through Labor Day 2016.
The Bullock Museum is one of more than 2,000 museums in all 50 states, the District of Columbia, Puerto Rico and American Samoa taking part in the initiative.
“The Bullock Museum offers military discounts for all of its exhibitions and films in an effort to provide educational and entertainment opportunities all year long,” says Director Dr. Victoria Ramirez. “We are excited to expand this offer to include free exhibition admission all summer to active military members and their families. It makes the Bullock Museum a great summer travel destination.”
