Military personnel enjoy free admission

This summer, the Texas His­torical Commission’s (THC) state historic sites are partici­pating in the Blue Star Muse­ums program that gives active military personnel and their families free admission to mu­seums and historic sites. The program, coordinated by the National Endowment for the Arts (NEA), began Memorial Day and lasts through Labor Day (Sept. 4, 2017).
