With increased public interest in its new permanent exhibit on Quantrill's Raid and its influence on the history of Lawrence, Watkins Museum of History is extending its public hours by opening on Sundays.

In addition to its usual 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Tuesday, Wednesday, Friday and Saturday hours and Thursday 10 a.m. to 8 p.m. hours, the Watkins Museum will now be open Sundays from 1 to 4 p.m. until Sept. 29.

More than 1,100 people visited the museum on the new exhibit's opening day Aug. 17. The collection explores Douglas County's free-state struggle and Civil War history, including artifacts from Quantrill's raid.
