Blue Star Museum

We are proud to participate in Blue Star Museums, a partnership among the National Endowment for the Arts, Blue Star Families, Joining Forces, MetLife Foundation, and museums across the country. Memphis Brooks Museum of Art offers free entry for all active duty, National Guard and Reserve military personnel and their families all year long.


To protect the art, we ask our visitors not to touch. Look, linger, think, converse, and enjoy, but please help us by remaining at least six inches from the art.
