On Sunday, July 1, the Milwaukee Art Museum will also offer all veterans and their families free admission, thanks to a partnership with Milwaukee County. Free parking is also available in the War Memorial parking lot.

“It is an honor to work with Blue Star Museums and Milwaukee County to offer this opportunity to military families,” said Daniel Keegan, director of the Milwaukee Art Museum. “It is a pleasure to collaborate yet again with the National Endowment for the Arts, Blue Star Families, and the Department of Defense to honor those who serve our country.”
