Tuskegee Airmen at Blue Star Museum

Historic Fort Steuben will present “Remembering the Tuskegee Airmen” as part of Blue Star Museums, a program offering free admission to active-duty military personnel and their families this summer from Armed Forces Day, May 18, 2024, through Labor Day, September 2, 2024.

 “Remembering the Tuskegee Airman” will feature a presentation on the two Steubenville men who served in that distinguished group and discussion of the mural that has memorialized them on Saturday, May 18 at noon.

Free tours of the reconstructed 18th century military fort and the First Federal Land Office are included in the Blue Star Museum program.

“Historic Fort Steuben is honored to be one of the 200 Blue Star Museums this year,” Director Judy Bratten said. “The program is designed to meet the needs of military families during the busy vacation season. And as part of the Lewis & Clark National Historic Trail, we can help military kids participate in the National Park Junior Ranger program. It’s a wonderful experience for the whole family.”

Blue Star Museums is a collaboration among the National Endowment for the Arts, Blue Star Families, the Department of Defense, and participating museums across America. For a list of participating museums, visit arts.gov/bluestarmuseums. The free admission program is available for those currently serving in the United States Military—Air Force, Army, Coast Guard, Marine Corps, Navy, and Space Force, members of the Reserves, National Guard, U.S. Public Health Commissioned Corps, NOAA Commissioned Corps, and up to five family members. Qualified members must show a Geneva Convention common access card (CAC), DD Form 1173 ID card (dependent ID), DD Form 1173-1 ID card or the Next Generation Uniformed Services (Real) ID card for entrance into a participating Blue Star Museum.
