ITOW Veterans Museum to offer free admission Monday

The In Their Own Words (ITOW) Veterans Museum in Perham is offering a Free Day at the Museum this Monday, May 28 -- Memorial Day -- from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m.

The ITOW Veterans Museum, located at 805 West Main in Perham, is the only museum in the country entirely dedicated to telling the stories of America's veterans... In Their Own Words.

Based on oral and written histories of veterans from World War I through the present day, the audio-visual exhibits of ITOW are a one of a kind experience.

The museum is open Monday through Friday, 11 a.m. to 3 p.m., and Saturday, 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. It is closed on Sundays.

On all other days, general admission at the museum is $5; veterans are admitted free of charge.

From Memorial Day through Labor Day, all active duty military personnel and their families will also be admitted free of charge, because ITOW has been designated as a "Blue Star Museum" for 2012.
