The La Porte City FFA Historical & Ag Museum will offer expanded hours beginning Sept. 3 and continuing through the remainder of the 2013 season, ending Nov. 21. The new hours will be 10-4 Tuesday and Thursday and Saturday 10-2.

“We are trying to accommodate the hours most requested by our visitors,” noted museum director Jan Erdahl.

“For a lot of our out of town visitors, when you factor in travel time, our new hours will be much more convenient. If these hours prove successful the museum would consider making them permanent.”
