EAA Aviation Museum joins Blue Star Museum program for 2022

Current military members and immediate families admitted free

Blue Star Museum Program 

EAA AVIATION CENTER, OSHKOSH, Wisconsin — (May 20, 2022) — The EAA Aviation Museum is participating in the annual Blue Star Museums program, a collaboration among the National Endowment for the Arts, Blue Star Families, the Department of Defense, and museums across America to offer free admission to the nation’s active duty military personnel and their families this summer.

The EAA museum is one of numerous Wisconsin museums involved in Blue Star Museums supporting the program. A list of the more than 2,000 participating museums nationwide is available at https://www.arts.gov/initiatives/blue-star-museums.

“EAA wanted to be involved in this program to say thanks to those men and women currently serving our country in the armed services, and to their immediate families who sacrifice so much to support them,” said Ron Connolly, EAA Aviation Museum director.

The 2022 free museum admission offer is good from Armed Forces Day (May 21) through Labor Day (September 5). It is not valid during EAA AirVenture Oshkosh week (July 23-31).

The free admission program is available for those currently serving in the United States Military—Army, Navy, Air Force, Marine Corps, Coast Guard as well as members of the Reserves, National Guard, U.S. Public Health Commissioned Corps, NOAA Commissioned Corps—and up to five family members. Qualified members must show a Geneva Convention common access card (CAC), DD Form 1173 ID card (dependent ID), or a DD Form 1173-1 ID card for entrance into a participating Blue Star Museum.
