The Washington State History Museums in downtown Tacoma and Olympia are giving free admission to active duty military and their families this summer.

The program starts on Memorial Day (May 28) and runs through Labor Day (September 6). Military personnel must show military ID and can be accompanied by up to five family members.

The WSHM has joined the Blue Star Museum Program, a collaboration with Blue Star Families – a non-profit organization that supports American military families.
