RENO, Nev. ( & KRNV) -- The National Automobile Museum is ready to reopen their doors at 9 a.m. on Wednesday.

The popular northern Nevada attraction has been closed for nearly two weeks since an arson fire in the early morning hours on June 20.

The museum is resuming daily business repair work is completed. Visitors will be able to see the damaged 1969 Ed Roth Custom Trike, an unfinished wall, bare concrete floor and patched carpet, all of which will be resurfaced after hours.

"While we have all been saddened that someone would vandalize this important community resource, the kind wishes from people locally and across the country have been humbling and inspiring," said Executive Director Jackie Frady. "We look forward to opening our doors before the busy July 4 weekend and encourage everyone to come by and show their support."

After the re-opening, the museum will resume normal operating hours of 9:30 a.m.-5:30 p.m. on Monday-Saturday, and 10 a.m.-4 p.m. on Sunday.
