WE ARE A BLUE STAR MUSEUM


Antioch Historical Museum Recognized as a 2019 Blue Star Museum
Thursday, May 9, 2019


Antioch Historical Museum proudly announces its participation in the 2019 Blue Star Museums Program. Blue Star Museums is a collaboration among the National Endowment for the Arts, Blue Star Families, the Department of Defense and over 2,000 museums across America.


Free admission is offered to the nation’s active-duty military personnel and their families from Armed Forces Day, May 18, 2019 through Labor Day, September 2, 2019. Antioch Historical Museum is excited to be a part of this national effort to say
“thank you” to our military community. We encourage them to visit and explore our museum. Make a new family memory with this no cost experience. There’s something for everyone to discover within the walls of our 1911 building and on our beautiful grounds.


Of course, admission to Antioch Historical Museum is always free. Our usual open hours are Wednesdays and Saturdays from 1:00pm – 4:00 pm. Antioch Historical Museum celebrates our active military personnel, veterans and their families and thanks them for their service and sacrifice. We encourage everyone to visit our Military Room with an outstanding collection of items from local veterans in all branches of our Armed Forces.

Thank you to our local VFW Post #6435 for their continued support of Antioch Historical Museum.
