TOLEDO Toledo Museum of Art has been designated a 2012 Blue Star Museum. Through a collaborative program with the National Endowment for the Arts, Blue Star Families and the U.S. Department of Defense, Blue Star Museums provide special offers to military families in recognition of their service to the nation.
More than 1,500 museums across America are participating this year by offering free admission to active duty military personnel and their families from Memorial Day through Labor Day.
Because public admission to TMA is already free year round, free parking and a 10 percent discount on purchases in the museum store are being provided to those in active duty and their immediate families.
To receive the benefit, military personnel must show identification.
