Tahoe Maritime Museum becomes a Blue Star Museum

HOMEWOOD, Calif. and#8211; The Tahoe Maritime Museum is proud to announce it is part of Blue Star Museums, a program offering free admission to all active duty military personnel and their families from Memorial Day through Labor Day 2011.

Blue Star Museums is a partnership among Blue Star Families, the National Endowment for the Arts, and more than 1,480 museums across America.

The National Endowment for the Arts was established by Congress in 1965 as an independent agency of the federal government.
