Reagan Library Reopens; Exhibit to Cover Ceremonies

June 14, 2004|From Times Staff and Wire Reports

The Ronald Reagan Presidential Library will reopen today with special hours from 10 a.m. until 8 p.m. as the general public gets its first opportunity to visit the former president's grave.

The library will remain open from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. daily until July 4, after which it will resume regular visiting hours.

An exhibit on last week's funeral ceremonies and the public tributes after Reagan's death will open July 4. Titled "Mourning in America," it will include photo montages, shell casings from the 21-gun salute and the bier on which Reagan's casket rested, the museum said Sunday. Video footage of the five days of funeral events in California and Washington, D.C., will also be shown.

Reagan, the nation's 40th president, died at his Los Angeles home June 5 at age 93. His body was entombed Saturday on the library grounds.
