Fort Bend Museum is one of more than 2,000 museums across America to offer free admission to military personnel and their families this summer
RICHMOND, TEXAS – Today, the Fort Bend Museum announced its participation in the 9th annual Blue Star Museums, a collaboration among 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.
“We participate in the Blue Star Museum program each year because it gives us an opportunity to reach out to the military community and support those who have served us,” said Claire Rogers, executive director of the Fort Bend History Association. “As a history organization, we are grateful to be able to provide service members and their families a way to connect with each other and with our community’s past in a greater way during the summer.”
Though the Museum gallery is currently closed for renovation due to a small fire that occurred in April, historic home tours of the 1883 Moore Home and 1850s Long-Smith Cottage can still be booked in advance by calling 281-342-6478 or emailing email@example.com.
