Military Appreciation

Blue Star Museums Program

The Children’s Museum of New Hampshire is once again part of the Blue Star Museum program that means we offer free admission to active duty and veteran military personnel and their families between Memorial Day and September 3 (we are closed on Labor Day).


Q. Who is eligible for free Children's Museum of New Hampshire admission through Blue Star Museums?

A. The free admission program is available to any bearer of a Geneva Convention common access card (CAC), a DD Form 1173 ID card (dependent ID), or a DD Form 1173-1 ID card, which includes active duty U.S. military - Army, Navy, Air Force, Marines, Coast Guard, as well as members of the National Guard and Reserve, U.S. Public Health Service Commissioned Corps, NOAA Commissioned Corps - and up to five family members. However, thanks to our sponsorship of this program by People's United Bank, we are extending this offer of free admission to Veterans as well.

Q. How many military personnel and/or family members are allowed in for free per visit?

A. The military ID holder plus up to five family members. The military ID holder can either be active duty service member or other dependent family member with the appropriate ID card. The active duty member or veteran does not have to be present for family members to use the program.

Q. How do you define a family member?

A. A family member of active duty or veteran military may include a spouse or child, aunts, uncles, grandparents, etc.
