The veterans art museum is always free. But officials say they're excited to be part of the festivities.

The museum recently opened "The Things They Carried Interactive." It's a website designed to make the arts and history of the museum's permanent exhibit -- based on Tim O'Brien's book -- widely available for free.

Other current exhibits include "Not About Bombs" by female Iraqi artists and "Tenacity and Truth" featuring artists from World War II, Korea, the Cold War, Vietnam and the Iraq War.
