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.
For information on eligibility and appropriate identification, see the Blue Star FAQ page.
