WEST BRANCH, Iowa (AP) - The Herbert Hoover Presidential Library and Museum is raising the cost of admission for the first time in nearly a decade.

The Iowa City Press-Citizen (https://icp-c.com/1xJFOTq ) reports the library has increased ticket prices for adults between the ages of 16 and 61 from $6 to $10. The price for senior citizens increased from $3 to $5. Admission for children between the ages of 6 and 15 is now $3, when it used to be free.

Active and retired military personnel with ID and college students with ID must pay $5 to enter. Children under 5 and school groups will still have free admission.

The last time admission was raised was in 2006. An archivist says the new ticket fees bring the institution into the price range of other presidential libraries.
