Currently 23 children’s museums in the pacific northwest offer FREE Membership to Gold Star Family Members. Kicked off by the Hands on Children’s Museum in Olympia, WA who also included one basic birthday party each year and FREE admission to parent support programs. HOCM Gold Star Program All children have the ability to soar when given the tools. Children’s museums nationwide provide those tools and we want them to pass these opportunities on to Gold Star children, free of charge. When tragedy strikes the simplest task may seem overwhelming. We want to make it as easy as possible for families of the fallen to put themselves in a happy, healthy and inspirational environment. Our hope is children’s museums nationwide will adopt this program in 2016. Why this program is important to us!
