“The Museum is an American treasure and we are grateful to share it with those who have given so much to our nation.”

City museums participating in the program include the Museum of Modern Art, the Guggenheim Museum, The MET, Brooklyn Museum and New York Botanical Garden.

Service members can get access for free and take up to five family members by showing their military ID, according to the program's website.
