Blue Star Museums Program

The Greenbelt Museum is a Blue Star Museum!

This means that we are offering free admission to our Greenbelt Museum Historic House all summer long from Armed Forces Day (May 18, 2019) to Labor Day (September 2, 2019). If you're Active duty U.S. Military (or their partner/spouse) just show your military ID* and up to five family members can visit for free!

Come visit the Historic House on Sundays and see our 1937 New Deal era gem for yourself. We're kid-friendly (no ropes! Please touch gently!) Don't forget to stop by our shop for retro and unique gifts. You can also enjoy our free exhibit in the Greenbelt Community Center and stroll through our historic community and discover what makes it so special.

See you soon!


*The free admission program is available for those currently serving in the United States Military—Army, Navy, Air Force, Marine Corps, Coast Guard as well as members of the Reserves, National Guard, U.S. Public Health Commissioned Corps, NOAA Commissioned Corps, and up to five family members. Qualified members must show a Geneva Convention common access card (CAC), DD Form 1173 ID card (dependent ID), or a DD Form 1173-1 ID card for entrance into a participating Blue Star Museum. If you are a retiree or veteran, please reach out to the museum you plan to visit directly; many times they offer reduced or special rates for our retiree or veteran population.
