Tacoma Art Museum to offer free admission to military

Nov 10, 2017 - 02:04 PM

Starting this Veterans Day, Tacoma Art Museum will offer year-round free admission to active duty military, reservists, veterans and their families.

The move is a gesture of gratitude from the museum, which has long participated in the Blue Star Museums program, a nationwide initiative which offers free admission into museums across the country for active duty military and up to five family members from Memorial Day to Labor Day.

The museum has several veteran-themed features to honor service members for the holiday, including card making in TAM Studio for visitors to send to deployed military, temporary patriotic tattoos for the kids, and display of a blown glass mixed media sculpture on loan from the Museum of Glass until November 29. This artwork was created by participants in MOG’s Hot Shop Heroes program — in partnership with the Warrior Transition Battalion at Joint Base Lewis-McChord — which serves soldiers, many of whom are coping with traumatic events and injuries suffered during combat.
