I love museums… children’s museums, art museums, science museums, even a stroll through The Rock ‘n Roll Hall of Fame. Free Admission?! I have been spoiled by the Washington DC Smithsonian Museums in the past which are all free… but some museums are $10 to $15 per person! Free is nice!
This summer, more than 600 museums in all 50 states are offering free admission to active duty military personnel and their families from Memorial Day, May 31, 2010, through Labor Day, September 6, 2010 to show their appreciation for those who are serving this nation. – 600 museums offer military families free admission
I think it is awesome what Blue Star Families has done to encourage museums around the United States to recognize our military families! We have thousands of companies on MilitaryAvenue that offer a military discount as well. Visit our “Military Rewards” page to learn more.
Plan a trip this summer! Get to a local museum. Get to know your community. Ask if they have free admission or a military-discount. (By the way the Air Force National Museum at Wright Patterson AFB, Ohio is always free!) Thank them for recognizing our military and then tell them a military-discount equals FREE advertising at MilitaryAvenue.com. You can print this simple business card to hand to them. If they don’t give a discount give them a card anyway! Keep a few in your wallet or purse. These cards aren’t just for museums! Let all your favorite military-friendly businesses know how to reach out to their military-community.
YOU might get them thinking about this well-deserving “market” they are missing. Future military families will have you to thank when they get a military discount. (Why is a Military Discount Valuable for a Marketing Strategy)
