Blue Star Initiative
The Wisconsin Historical Museum is a Blue Star Partner!
The Wisconsin Historical Society is proud to offer free general admission to active-duty military personnel and their families at all 12 of our historic sites and museums as a part of the Blue Star Museums Initiative.
Active-duty military personnel and up to five family members are welcome to visit our locations free of charge from Armed Forces Day (3rd Sat. of May) through Labor Day (1st Mon. of Sept.). Book your general admission tickets here and select Blue Star when prompted, or purchase tickets on site. Please note that special events requiring advance registration are not included in this offer.
