The Blue Star Museums Program, which began in 2010 as a collaboration between the DoD, Blue Star Families and the National Endowment for the Arts, has been growing dramatically and includes everything from science to fine arts to children's museums. For a state-by-state list of participating museums, click here, which includes Tacoma's Museum District.

Military families can also take advantage of the Anheuser-Busch Here's to Heroes program, which offers once-a-year free access to all Servicemembers and their families at all Busch Gardens, Sea World and Sesame Place theme parks.
