Poster for Blue Star Families offering free admission to active duty military to participating museums.
At the Hawai‘i State Art Museum, admission is always free. Looking for more family activities this summer?

Blue Star Museums is a collaboration among the National Endowment for the Arts (NEA), Blue Star Families, the Department of Defense, and museums across America. Each summer since 2010, Blue Star Museums have offered free admission to the nation’s active-duty military personnel and their families, including National Guard and Reserve, from Memorial Day through Labor Day (for 2017, Monday, May 29, 2017 – Monday, September4, 2017). Go to the NEA website (NEA: Blue Star Museums) and see their map or select from the list of states for museums that are participants of Blue Star Museums in 2017. Their map will be updated all summer as more museums sign up to participate.
