Prairie Village Museum is a Blue Star Museum

This spring the Prairie Village Museum became one of 1,600 museums around the country offering active duty military personnel, including active Reserve and National Guard, and their families, free admission to the museum through the Blue Star Museums program.

Blue Star Museums is collaboration among the National Endowment for the Arts, Blue Star Families, the Department of Defense, and museums across America.

The Geographical Center Historical Society board of directors voted to make Prairie Village Museum a Blue Star Museum this spring.

"The board felt this was one way the historical society and by extension this community could show its appreciation and support for military families who live in or travel through this region," said executive director Cathy Jelsing. "We hope many families will take advantage of this opportunity."
