AUSTIN, MN — Museums across America will be opening their doors for military personnel and their families starting on Memorial Day.
The Mower County Historical Society is joining more than 1,500 museums in the special honor.
It’s part of the Blue Star Museums Program, which offers free admission to military personnel and their families.
Folks taking part tell us it’s their way of honoring those who sacrifice so much for our country.
“Having this with military personnel and up to five members of their family to be able to come out and enjoy our facilities out here, I think is a great way that they can learn a little bit and have some fun at the same time,” Mower County Historical Society Executive Director Dustin Heckman said.
The Freeborn County Historical Museum, Library and Village is also taking part in the event, which will run until labor day.
