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.

Free admission for active duty military, their family members

LOS ALAMOS, N.M., May 22, 2013—Los Alamos National Laboratory’s Bradbury Science Museum is again 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 27, through Labor Day, Sept. 2.

“In this the 70th anniversary year celebration of Los Alamos National Laboratory, the Bradbury Science Museum is once again excited and proud to be part of the 1,800 museums throughout the United States participating in the Blue Star Museums program 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 museum is open daily except Thanksgiving, Christmas and New Year’s Day.

The Bradbury Science Museum is located at 15th Street and Central Avenue in downtown Los Alamos. Photos are allowed.
