The Prehistoric Museum announces the launch of Blue Star Museums, a collaboration among the National Endowment for the Arts, Blue Star Families, the Department of Defense and more than 2,000 museums across America to offer free admission to the nation’s active duty military personnel including National Guard and Reserve and their families from Memorial Day (May 26, 2014) through Labor Day (September 1, 2014). Leadership support has been provided by MetLife Foundation through Blue Star Families. The program provides families an opportunity to enjoy the nation’s cultural heritage and learn more about their new communities after a military move. The complete list of participating museums is available at arts.gov/national/blue‐star‐museums.
It is a privilege to give back to our military for all they do and have done for us and the museum proudly supports and promotes this incredible program.
The USU Eastern Prehistoric Museum has expanded their offer to include retired military. Please present current military ID upon check-in (valid for immediate family members only.)
The museum, located at 155 East Main Street in Price, Utah, is a multi-faceted venue that includes paleontology, archaeology, geology and an art gallery. There is also a fabulous Children’s Discovery Area for the little ones. Hours of operation are Monday through Saturday 9 a.m. to 5 p.m.
