The Morris Museum of Art will offer free admission to active duty military personnel, including the National Guard and Reserve, and their families from Memorial Day through Labor Day, Sept. 1.

For the fifth consecutive year, the Morris has joined Blue Star Museums, a collaborative effort among the National Endowment for the Arts, Blue Star Families, the Department of Defense, and more than 2,000 museums across the country. The program provides families with an opportunity to learn more about their new communities after a military move.

Thank you

A nice gesture and it is appreciated. Any possibility of making it year-round?
