The Manitowoc County Historical Society is now one of more than 2,000 museums nationwide that are participating in the 9th annual Blue Star Museums. This is a collaboration with the National Endowment for the Arts, Blue Star Families, the Department of Defense, and more than 2,000 museums across America to offer free admission to the nation’s active duty military personnel and their families from Memorial Day through Labor Day. NEA Chairman Jane Chu stated “We appreciate the enthusiasm of museums all across the country who open their doors for military and their families to spend time together and have new arts experiences.”
