🎖 Free Summer Museum Admission for Military

Members of the military are invited to spend the summer with their families at The Schiele Museum of Natural History. From May 18, 2024 (Armed Forces Day), until September 2, 2024 (Labor Day), veterans, active military, and their loved ones can enjoy free museum admission.

  • This is the third year Dignity Memorial has provided free museum visits for veterans and their families during the summer months.

  • In addition, The Schiele is one of nearly 2,000 museums across the United States participating as a Blue Star Museum.

Through a collaboration with the National Endowment for the Arts, Blue Star Families, the Department of Defense, and the City of Gastonia, active military and their families will also enjoy free museum admission this summer. “We are grateful to The Schiele Museum for participating in this summer’s Blue Star Museums program and we hope military families will take this opportunity to create meaningful, lifelong memories,” said Maria Rosario Jackson, PhD, chair of the National Endowment for the Arts.

Military members can bring up to 5 family members per visit and there is no limit on visits during the summer months.
