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.
Never miss a local story.
Webb said the museum will have a booth at the market for promotion.
