By  | 

SPARKS, Nev. -- Active Military and their families will be able to attend the Sparks Museum & Cultural Center for free this summer.

The Sparks Museum and Cultural center is collaborating with the National Endowment for the Arts, Blue Star Families and the Department of Defense to offer free admission to military personnel and their families this summer for the fourth year in a row.

From now until Labor Day 2013, the Sparks Museum and Cultural Center will be participating as a Blue Star Museum, a program that provides families and opportunity to learn about the nation's cultural heritage and learn more about their new communities.

“The role that Nevadans have played serving our country both past and present is extraordinary. At the Sparks Museum we want to make sure that our local military families know how grateful we are for what they have done and are doing for us every day. The free admission we are offering as a Blue Star Museum is but a small token of our appreciation,” Anthea Humphreys, museum’s executive director said.

Sparks Museum and Cultural Center is one of 2,000 museums across the nation to participate.

It is located at 814 Victorian Ave in Sparks.
