ALBANY, GA (WALB) -

The Flint Riverquarium is honoring active duty service men and women with free admission this summer.

From Memorial Day through Labor Day, current troops and their families can get into the attraction free. More than 1,800 museums nationwide are showing their appreciation for our military by taking part in the Blue Star Museum Program.

"People serving in the military sacrifice by serving in the military," said manager Vicki Churchman. "This is just one small way that the community can recognize that sacrifice and honor it."

The deal also applies at Thronateeska Heritage Center where military families can see shows at the Wetherbee Planetarium for free.
