The American Civil War Museum of Ohio in Tiffin announced the launch of its participation in a program to extend free admittance to all active duty military at the ACWMO from Memorial Day through Labor Day.
"All military personnel has to do is show current their military status for admission," ACWMO Executive Director Michael Baltzell said.
The Nationwide Blue Star Museum Initiative is a nationwide collaboration between the National Endowment for the Arts, Blue Star Families, the Department of Defense, and more than 1,800 museums across America to offer free admission to active duty military personnel and their immediate families.
"It is an honor to provide this service to our active duty military men and women and their families, not only as a show of support, but also as a small token of appreciation for their sacrifice," Baltzell said.
Leadership support has been provided by the Met Life Foundation through Blue Star Families. A complete list of participating museums is available at www.arts.gov/bluestarmuseums.
