Free General Admission for Military Families

The Virginia Discovery Museum is proud to be a Blue Star Museum from May 18 through Sept. 2, 2019! This national program offers free, all-day general admission to the Museum during the summer for active-duty military personnel – including National Guard, Reserve, U.S. Public Health Commissioned Corps, and NOAA Commissioned Corps – and up to five family members. VDM also extends this program benefit to military retirees and veterans. Eligible visitors must present a valid Common Access Card, DD Form 1173 or 1173-1 ID card, DD Form 2 ID card, DD Form 2765 ID card, or a veteran ID card to participate. Thank you for your service!
