Three Smithsonian Museums Extending Hours This Summer

Joseph Henry SaintedSmithsonian Secretary Wayne Clough announced yesterday that the National Museum of American History, National Air and Space Museum and National Museum of Natural History will stay open two hours later, until 7:30 p.m. every day through Labor Day.

I’m looking forward to the extended hours, as I may actually get to visit one of these this summer now that they are open longer.

  1. Can you tell me how they expect this to increase revenue, since these museums are… free? Is it purely from gift shop purchases?

  2. Of the top of my head, I’m sure gift shop and IMAX revenue helps, especially as these are the three most heavily visited museums.
