“Imagine Nation is proud to welcome military families through the Blue Star Museums program.

We are excited to have military families spend their summer with us,” said Imagine Nation, A Museum Early Learning Center Marketing Specialist Heather Grance in a press release.

“Visiting a museum is a great way to get to know a community—whether it’s in your hometown or a stop on a road trip,” said NEA Chairman Jane Chu in a press release. “We appreciate the enthusiasm of museums all across the country who open their doors for military and their families to spend time together and have new arts experiences.”

This year’s participating Blue Star Museums represent not just fine arts museums, but also science museums, history museums, zoos, nature centers, and children’s museums.
