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.
This promotion will last through Labor Day weekend (Sunday, September 4). The Museum is open Monday – Friday, 10 AM – 4 PM and weekends from 1-4 PM (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.”
