UW Geological Museum Opens Tuesday


August 24, 2009 — The University of Wyoming Geological Museum will be open on a part time basis beginning Tuesday, Aug. 25.

The museum hours will be 1-4 p.m. Tuesdays through Fridays, from 10 a.m.-2 p.m. Saturdays and noon-4 p.m. Sundays during the 2009-0 academic year. It will be closed Mondays.

The museum is able to open because the UW Foundation provided funding for a part-time security guard to ensure the safety of the collection. UW President Tom Buchanan has thanked the Foundation for its support in securing funding to make the collections accessible for public viewing.

The museum closed June 30 as one of a series of steps taken to meet an $18.3 million state budget cut that took effect July 1.
