Blue Star Museums


Active-duty military personnel and their families are invited to tour the Wood County Historical Center & Museum at no charge this summer as part of the annual Blue Star Museums program in a collaboration with the National Endowment for the Arts, Blue Star Families, the Department of Defense.

  • The promotion begins Memorial Day weekend (Saturday May 27 - Sunday May 28)
  • The Museum is closed Monday May 29, Tuesday July 4, and Monday September 4
  • The promotion ends on Sunday September 2

The Museum is open Monday – Friday, 10 AM – 4 PM and weekends from 1-4 PM (but closed on holidays). The scenic grounds are open daily dawn to dusk for photos, picnics, and walking.

“The Blue Star Museums program is a fun, free activity for military families to enjoy during the summer months,” said NEA Chairman Jane Chu. “The program is also a great way for service member families to connect to their new communities, and it can provide a meaningful way for families to reconnect after deployment. The Blue Star Museums program is also a perfect way for the arts community to say ‘thank you’ to our service members and their families for the sacrifices they make on our behalf, every day.”
