The hours of operation for the Germantown Colony Museum will return to its past schedule of operations, says Lynn Dorsey, executive director for the Webster Parish Convention and Visitors Bureau.
The museum’s newly constructed welcome center will be open from 10 a.m. until 3 p.m. Thursday through Saturday.
Due to budget shortages prior to the end of the state’s 2014-15 fiscal year, Secretary of State Tom Schedler was forced to restrict the hours of operations of museums under the department’s management across the state to one day per week.
Now that the state’s new fiscal year has begun, the museums have returned to their previous scheduled hours of operation.
The new visitor center houses exhibits of historical artifacts, a gift shop and handicapped-accessible, public restrooms.
For more information, contact Jean Doerge, curator, at 377-6061 or email her at firstname.lastname@example.org. The museum is located at 200 Museum Road, off Germantown Road.
Admission is free.
