“We are proud to once again participate in the worthwhile Blue Star Museums program this summer,” said Historic Old Sacramento Foundation Deputy Director Kristina Swanson. “We are happy provide an opportunity for our nation’s service members and their families to connect with our national treasures. It is our way of giving back to dedicated military families who sacrifice so much.”
This year, more than 1,800 — and counting — museums in all 50 states, plus Puerto Rico and American Samoa are taking part in the initiative, including more than 450 new museums this year.
The free admission program is available to any bearer of a Geneva Convention common access card, a DD Form 1173 ID card or a DD Form 1173-1 ID card, which includes active duty military (Army, Navy, Air Force, Marines, Coast Guard), National Guard and reserve members and up to five immediate family members.
The Sacramento History Museum, 101 I St., is open daily from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m..
Admission is $6 for adults $4 for youths ages 6-17 and free for children 5 and under.
