The Deniliquin Historical Society museum has extended its opening hours.
Located in Macauley St at the former police inspectors residence, the museum is now open from 10am to 4pm on Tuesdays and Saturdays.
Publicity officer Betty Mathews said the decision to extend the hours came from public demand.
‘‘This is in response to requests from locals who work on Saturdays as well as many visiting tourists,’’ she said.
‘‘We invite everyone to drop into the museum during these hours to view the interesting exhibits on display which showcase historical items from our Deniliquin and district area.’’
The recent installation of an internet connection to the museum has allowed historical society members to complete their research on site and therefore keep the museum open for longer.
