Museum back to 7 days

PENSACOLA, Fla. -- The National Naval Aviation Museum is now operating seven days a week. The museum at Naval Air Station Pensacola began closing on Mondays in early July to cut costs during sequestration. Federal civilian employees were required to take 11 furlough days off without pay through the summer and early fall. But earlier this month, the Pentagon found other alternatives to save money and reduced the number of furlough days to six. (Source: Pensacola News Journal, 08/21/13)
