Program waives museum fee for military and families

FARGO – Active-duty military personnel and their families will get free admission from Memorial Day through Labor Day to a number of regional museums.

Regional North Dakota organizations include the Plains Art Museum in Fargo, the Barnes County Historical Society Museum in Valley City, and the National Buffalo Museum and the Stutsman County Memorial Museum, both in Jamestown.

Regional Minnesota participants include the Historical and Cultural Society of Clay County in Moorhead, the Becker County Historical Society and Museum in Detroit Lakes, the ITOW Veterans Museum in Perham, the Otter Tail County Museum in Fergus Falls and the Heritage Foundation in East Grand Forks.

The admission waiver is a result of Blue Star Museums, a collaboration among the National Endowment for the Arts, Blue Star Families, the Department of Defense and more than 1,800 museums across America.
