Muncie, IN—Minnetrista is proud to announce their participation, once again, in Blue Star Museum Days.

From Memorial Day (May 28) to Labor Day (September 3), Minnetrista, in collaboration with Blue Star Museums, among the National Endowment for the Arts, Blue Star Families, the Department of Defense, and museums across America, will be offering free admission to our nation’s active duty military personnel, including the National Guard and Reserve, and their families.

This year, more than 2,000 museums in all states, and the District of Columbia, Puerto Rico, and American Samoa will be taking part in the initiative. The effort to recruit museums has involved partnerships with American Alliance of Museums, the Association of Art Museum Directors, the Association of Children’s Museums, the American Association of State and Local History, and the Association of Science-Technology Centers.

Blue Star Families is a national, non-profit network. Their worldwide membership includes military spouses, children, parents, and friends, as well as service members, veterans, and civilians.
