Admission to the newly opened Mississippi Civil Rights Museum and the Museum of Mississippi History will be free this Saturday through Tuesday.

To honor the National Day of Racial Healing, the W.K. Kellogg Foundation is sponsoring the free admission to the museums, which opened Dec. 9 with a historic celebration attended by Myrlie Evers, the widow of slain Civil Rights activist Medgar Evers, and President Donald Trump.

For the free admission days, the museums will be open regular hours, which are from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. both Saturday and Tuesday and 1 to 5 p.m. Sunday. The museums are closed every Monday.
