National Arboretum to Stay Open 7 Days a Week

There's a lot more time for you to enjoy the treasures of the National Arboretum!

Beginning April 10 the arboretum will be open to the public seven days a week. The arboretum had cut back to three days a week in 2013 due to funding cuts.

After those cuts, the Friends of the National Arboretum began raising money to reopen its doors through the week.
