Northland Attractions Offering Free Admission To Military Members
Military members can explore the Northland this summer and it's on the house.
Several local landmarks have partnered with the National Endowment for the Arts' Blue Star Museum program to give back to active duty military members as a thank you for their service.
Participating locations include the Lake Superior Zoo, Glensheen Mansion, Duluth Depot and the Duluth Children's Museum.
Carlton County Historical Society in Cloquet will also be offering up free admission.
The attraction begins this Saturday and continues through Labor Day.
You can see a full list of Minnesota attractions here. (Note: attractions will be added as/if they come in.)
Free admission is available for those in the United States Military, Army, Navy, Air Force, Marine Corps and Coast Guard. It also includes Active Duty members, Reservists and National Guardsman. Up to five family members can also attend the museums for free.
Military personnel must show their CAC, dependent ID or DD Form 1173-1 ID.
2,000 museums nationwide are participating, including fine art, children's, history and science museums, zoos and nature centers, according to the organization's website.
