The Klamath County Museum will offer free admission for Klamath County residents on Saturday, June 5, in commemoration of the anniversary of D-Day during World War II. The museum at 1451 Main St. will be open regular hours, 9 a.m. to 5 p.m.

The D-Day invasion on June 6, 1944, involved about 160,000 American and allied troops landing along a 50-mile stretch of French coastline. More than 9,000 allied soldiers died on D-Day. The deaths included three men from the Klamath Basin: Walter Buick, Charles Semon and Donald Turner.

Because the anniversary date falls on a Sunday, when the museum is closed, free admission is being granted to local residents on Saturday.
