Every time we think the National Zoo’s beyond-adorable panda cub, Bao Bao, couldn’t get any cuter, she proves us wrong. Fortunately, you aren’t going to have to wait any longer to see her in person.

The almost-five-month-old cub will go on display to her adoring public for the first time this Saturday, and the National Zoo is prepping for big crowds. They’ve extended hours for the panda house, which will be open 8 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. Saturday, Sunday and Monday.

Starting Tuesday, the panda house’s hours will be 10 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. (Friends of the National Zoo will be able to make special appointments to see her before 10 a.m.)

Visitors will be allowed into the building in small groups to avoid overcrowding, zoo officials said.

Bao Bao may be visible inside or outside, depending on the day, curators said. The amount of time she and her mom, Mei Xiang, will be on view will depend on their behavior each day.
