PHILADELPHIA (CBS) – In honor of the Philadelphia Museum of Art’s newest exhibit, they’re offering free admission to first responders and their families for the next week.

The exhibit is “Shipwreck! Winslow Homer and The Life Line” and it will feature many pieces of work celebrating scenes of heroism explains curator Kathy Foster.

“Forefathers and foremothers of the present day first responders. So, especially, in the month that we remember 9/11, it’s important for us to say thank you to the people who are out there looking out for us,” Foster explains.

So first responders who show their IDs will get a chance to explore the exhibit and the entire museum; no charge.

“Policemen, firemen, all kinds of life safety personnel are all welcome to come [and] bring their families, they will get free admission to the museum,” says Foster.

This special offer lasts until September 30.
