Stars and Stripes–Tudor Place Riddled with Military History

The U.S. military newspaper Stars and Stripes received an introduction to the military history of the Peter family and Tudor Place from Executive Director Mark Hudson and Curator Grant Quertermous.

Tudor Place is a Blue Star museum, and is free for active U.S. military and their families from Armed Forces Day (the third Saturday in May) until Labor Day each year.

Tudor Place also honors all active and retired service families with this offer on Veterans Day, November 11.

Tudor Place is open Tuesdays through Saturdays from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m., and Sundays from 12 p.m. to 4 p.m. Tours begin on the hour and the last daily tour starts at 3 p.m. Reserve tours online or at the Visitor Center.

We are a Blue Star Museum! (What is that?)

Active-duty members of the U.S. military, including National Guard and Reserve, and their family members traveling with or without them, are admitted free from May 19 (after Armed Forces Day) to Labor Day.

Like about 2,000 other U.S. institutions, we are a Blue Star Museum, part of a collaboration among the National Endowment for the Arts, Blue Star Families, and the Department of Defense.

Tudor Place also honors service families with this offer on Veterans Day, November 11.

Up to six members of one family at a time (including children, spouse, and other kin) may join any regular house tour, as often as desired, space permitting. Military ID holder can be an active-duty service member or a dependent family member with appropriate ID; the service member need not be present to take advantage of this opportunity.

Self-guided visits to the Garden are always free; illustrated garden maps and smartphone audio tour information are available in the Visitor Center.
