Starting September 15, the BYU Museum of Peoples and Cultures will stay open until 9 p.m. on Tuesdays.
A student-run museum, the new hours will provide more opportunities for both student employees and youth and family groups to interact and engage with each other, while learning more about humanity.
"We are excited to offer the new exhibit hours so people who previously were unavailable will have the opportunity to experience the museum and deepen their connection with different peoples and cultures," said Museum Promotions Manager Cassidy Ward.
The Museum will still be open from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m., on Mondays, Wednesdays, Thursdays and Fridays. On every third Monday of the month, the Museum hosts a Family Home Evening event at 7 p.m. On the second Friday of the month is the Museum's Date Night event at 7 p.m.
The current exhibition at Museum of Peoples and Cultures tells the history of the Museum at BYU through important artifacts from the collections. Items from all over the world, from South and Central America to Asia and Polynesia and right here in Utah, are on display.
The Museum is always free and is located at 2201 North Canyon Road (next door to Outdoors Unlimited at the corner of Canyon Road and 2230 North in Provo).
