Hemingway-Pfeiffer Museum Joins Blue Star Museums Program

Kimberly J. Williams
The Hemingway-Pfeiffer Museum and Educational Center in Piggott has joined with the National Endowment of the Arts and Blue Star Families as part of the Blue Star Museums program. The program offers free admission to all active duty military personnel and their families through Labor Day.

Hemingway-Pfeiffer is one of more than 1,300 museums across the United States to join the program. The free admission program is available to active duty military and their immediate family members, including Army, Navy, Air Force, Marines, Coast Guard, active duty National Guard and Reserve members.

The Hemingway-Pfeiffer Museum and Educational Center opened in July 1999. Arkansas State University purchased the historic property in 1997 and the house and the barn were restored and reflect the 1930s era. It was in the barn that Hemingway wrote a large portion of one of his most famous novels, A Farewell to Arms, and various short stories.
