NORMAN — The Sam Noble Museum will kick off this summer season with a collaboration among the National Endowment of the Arts, Blue Star Families, the Department of Defense, and more than 1,800 museums across America to offer complimentary admission to all active-duty military personnel and their families from Memorial Day through Labor Day.

The complimentary admission program is available to active- duty military and their immediate family members (military ID holder and five immediate family members). In addition to active duty members of the Army, Navy, Air Force, Marines and Coast Guard, the program also targets active duty National Guard and Reserve members. The museum offers a discount of $1 per ticket for active duty and veteran U.S. military personnel and their families throughout the year.

Admission is $5 for adults, $4 for seniors 65 and up, and $3 for youth ages 6 to 17. Children ages 5 and under are admitted free. Discounts are available for military personnel and their immediate families. For more information or accommodations on the basis of disability, call 325-4712 or
