Greater Hartford Museums Offer Free Admissions

HARTFORD —  Beginning this Memorial Day, the Greater Hartford area museums will offer free admission this summer to active duty military members and their families.

Thanks to  “Operation Appreciation: Blue Star Museums,” the state has found “one more way to say a collective “Thank You” for their service to our country,” said Gov. Jodi Rell in a statement yesterday.

” This initiative also opens more doors of opportunity for the public to enjoy and appreciate culture and arts in Connecticut,” Rell said.

The campaign is a collaboration between the National Endowment for the Arts and Blue Star families, a nonprofit group that supports U.S. military families.

The promotion runs from  May 31 through Labor Day, Sept.  6.

The participating museums are: 

Harriet Beecher Stowe Center, Hartford 

Imagine Nation Museum, Bristol

New Britain Museum of American Art, New Britain

Stanley-Whitman House, Farmington

Wadsworth Atheneum Museum of Art, Hartford
