The Franklin County Museum will have free admission May 3 to celebrate its new Saturday hours.
The museum at 305 N. Fourth Ave. in Pasco had been open Saturday afternoons until 2007, but started closing because of a lack of staff, said museum administrator Sherel Webb.
She hopes that opening from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. Saturdays will give visitors an alternative to the current schedule of noon to 4 p.m. Tuesday through Friday.
The museum also will try to pick up visitors from the Pasco Farmers Market, which also opens for the season May 3.
Webb said the museum will have a booth at the market for promotion.
