The i.d.e.a. Museum is proud to participate in this program again in 2018. The museum will offer free admission from Tuesday, May 29 to Sunday, Sept. 2, to active-duty military personnel and up to five family members with the following IDs: Geneva Convention common access card (CAC), DD Form 1173 ID card (dependent ID) or DD Form 1173 - 1 ID card. Blue Star Museums is a collaboration among the National Endowment for the Arts, Blue Star Families, the Department of Defense, and more than 2,000 museums nationwide.
The i.d.e.a. Museum is a proud participant in Museums for All - a cooperative initiative between Association of Children’s Museum and Institute of Museum and Library Services.
This initiative allows families presenting an Electronic Benefits Transfer (EBT) card and valid photo ID receive a discounted museum admission ($3 per person; limit 6 in a family) when they stop by the i.d.e.a. Museum.
This signature access program encourages families of all backgrounds to visit museums regularly and build lifelong museum habits.
