All current and past military service members, and their families will receive free admission from 9 am to 4 pm that day.
This event will include a special visit from the Raptor Center from the University of Minnesota.

The guests from the Twin Cities will be at the Children’s Museum from 10 am to 12 pm, with special programming featuring our country’s national bird, a bald eagle.
