Free Saturdays will continue at Jacksonville’s Cummer Museum of Art & Gardens — even as the current program comes to an end.

A 10-year partnership between the museum and Wayne and Delores Barr Weaver — called Free for All — will end Saturday. But the museum will continue the once-a-month free admission beginning in January, with a new partner: Citibank.

The Weavers, former owners of the Jacksonville Jaguars, launched free Saturday admissions in 2012, when the museum celebrated its 50th anniversary. 

Over the past decade, the program has provided free admission to more than 100,000 visitors on the first Saturday of each month.

Admission normally costs $15 for adults and $10 for seniors and military.
