Douglas County Historical Society is one of more than 2,000 museums across America to offer free admission to military personnel and their families this summer in collaboration with the National Endowment for the Arts, Blue Star Families, and the Department of Defense. 

Douglas County Historical Society is a proud participant in Blue Star Museums, a collaboration among the National Endowment for the Arts, Blue Star Families, the Department of Defense, and more than 2,000 museums across America to offer free admission to the nation’s active duty military personnel and their families from Memorial Day through Labor Day. The program provides families an opportunity to enjoy the nation’s cultural heritage and learn more about their community, especially after a military move. A list of participating museums is available at arts.gov/bluestarmuseums.

“The General Crook House’s military history and location on historic Fort Omaha is a great educational opportunity and fit for the partnership with Blue Star Musuems,” said Rylee Hall, Community Engagement Coordinator at Douglas County Historical Society.
