The San Diego Botanic Garden will proudly participate in the Blue Star Museum program by offering free admission to all active duty members of the U.S. military and five of their immediate family members. As a way of saying thank you to the brave men and women of the U.S. military, the Garden implemented their program on May 1, three weeks ahead of other Blue Star Museum participants. The free admission will run until Sept. 7.

The Blue Star Museum program is a partnership between the National Endowment for the Arts, Blue Star Families, the Department of Defense, and museums across the country. The San Diego Botanic Garden is able to participate in the program due to the generous support of a Garden member. For free military admission, present one of the following active military I.D. cards: Army, Navy, Air Force, Marines, Coast Guard, National Guard, and Reserve.
