Military families can enjoy free tours of Johnson County’s 1950s All-Electric House all summer. The Johnson County Museum is one of more than 2,000 museums across America to offer free admission to military personnel and their families this summer. It’s part of the Blue Star Museums program, a collaboration with the National Endowment for the Arts, Blue Star Families, the Department of Defense.
Participating museums will 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 2015.
