— The National Museum of Racing and Hall of Fame in Saratoga Springs will open to the public again on Tuesday.

The museum had hoped to reopen on Thursday, less than one week since it was burgled and five priceless trophies were taken.

When the museum opens again it will be following its regular fall hours, which are 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. daily and noon to 4 p.m. on Sunday.
