Lyman Museum offers free admission to active duty military, their families

This summer the Lyman Museum is again participating in Blue Star Museums, a collaboration among the National Endowment for the Arts, Blue Star Families, the Department of Defense, and more than 2,000 museums across America, to offer free admission to active duty military personnel (including the National Guard and Reserve) and their families, through Labor Day 2021. Please note that the Museum will be closed on Independence Day (July 4) and Labor Day (Sept. 6).

The free admission program is available to any bearer of a Geneva Convention Common Access Card, a DD Form 1173 ID card (dependent ID), or a DD Form 1173-1 ID card, which includes active-duty U.S. military, as well as members of the National Guard and Reserve, U.S. Public Health Service Commissioned Corps, NOAA Commissioned Corps — and up to five family members.

For more information, visit questions, or call the museum at 935-5021. The Lyman Museum is a Smithsonian Affiliate, located at 276 Haili Street in historic downtown Hilo, and is open 10 a.m.-4:30 p.m., Monday-Friday, except on federal holidays.
