For the second consecutive year, the Guggenheim has joined with Blue Star Museums, a nationwide program that includes over 1,000 museums across America, offering free admission to active duty military personnel and their families from Memorial Day, May 30, 2011, through Labor Day, September 5, 2011. Free admission will be available to active-duty military and up to five family members, which includes active-duty Reserve and active-duty National Guard. First launched in the summer of 2010, Blue Star Museums is a partnership between Blue Star Families, a national, nonpartisan, nonprofit network of military families; and the National Endowment for the Arts. For more information, and to find out which other museums are participating in the program, visit the Blue Star website.
