Blue and Gold Star benefits begin
Blue Star Summer
Science Factory is proud to be a part of a yearly 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 the nation’s active duty military personnel including National Guard and Reserve and their families from Memorial Day through Labor Day. It’s our small way of saying thank you to these brave individuals!
Gold Star Museum New!
Youth Museums in the Pacific Northwest initiated the Gold Star Museum Program. Year-round, the Science Factory will provide free admission to any military family that presents a Gold Star ID. These families have lost a parent during active military duty, and the Northwest Association of Youth Museums hopes their facilities can be safe havens and places of healing for the families.
