Veteran's Day Museums
Military veterans are so important to our communities, inspiring young and old with their service and sacrifice. To honor these heroes, NEMA is establishing the Veteran's Day Museums program, a way for your institution to honor them too with free or reduced admission and special programming during Veteran's Day commemorations.

NEMA has created a new website, MuseumsNewEngland.org, to promote member museums to potential visitors, event planners, and tourism entities. Make sure your museum is listed. Click here for details.
