The High Desert Museum is joining over 1500 other museums in the nation as a "Blue Star Museum." All active duty military members and their families can enjoy the museum free of charge until Labor Day. Melissa Hochschild with the museum says they are honored to offer these families who have given so much to the country a little enjoyment. "Well, we really want to reach out to military families; whether or not their active duty family member is with them, to give them something to do this summer and enjoy the museum on us."
Blue Star Museums are in all 50 states. This is the 3rs year for the program. Hochschild says the offer includes up to five family members. She adds that another special they are offering this Sunday is free entrance for all fathers on Father's Day.
