The Museum of Tolerance is proud to be a Blue Star Museum and to offer free admission to the nation's active duty military personnel including National Guard and Reserve and their families from Memorial Day through Labor Day 2023.

The Blue Star Museums program is a collaboration with the National Endowment for the Arts, Blue Star Families, the Department of Defense and more than 2,000 museums across America.

“There will forever be a special place of honor for the veterans of our Armed Forces at the Museum of Tolerance. For without their commitment and years of unselfish service, the freedoms and values we hold dear and cherish could disappear. As Simon Wiesenthal often said: ‘Freedom is not a gift from heaven-we must fight for it every day.’ Indeed, our men and women in uniform earn and protect those freedoms every day.’”— Rabbi Abraham Cooper, Associate Dean, Simon Wiesenthal Center
