Free admission for active duty military, their family members
LOS ALAMOS, New Mexico, May 16, 2012—Los Alamos National Laboratory’s Bradbury Science Museum is partnering with the National Endowment for the Arts, Blue Star Families Foundation and the Department of Defense in the Blue Star Museums program to host active duty military personnel and their families from Memorial Day, May 28, through Labor Day, Sept. 3.
Joining more than 1,500 participating museums throughout the United States, "Bradbury Science Museum is excited and proud to be part of the Blue Star Museums program as a way to thank our nation’s military personnel – and their families – for their service," said Bradbury Science Museum Director Linda Deck.
"The museum already has a free-admission policy, but we’re participating in this program to raise awareness of the importance of honoring members of the U.S. armed services, as we share our collective history," said Deck.
The Bradbury Science Museum features films and interactive exhibits interpreting LANL’s contributions to modern science, research, and technology, including its role in the Manhattan Project and current mission in national security.
The Bradbury Science Museum is open daily except Thanksgiving, Christmas and New Year’s Day. The museum is located at 15th Street and Central Avenue in downtown Los Alamos. Photos are allowed.
