RICHMOND, Va — With additional snow expected Wednesday evening and record cold expected at the end of the week, there is the potential for area schools and businesses to remain closed through the end of the week.

For people who have been stuck at home the last few days and are starting to get bored, that may not be welcome news.

But there is some good news — there are attractions in our area that are planning on opening on Thursday and Friday.

Here are a few of them:

  • The Virginia Museum of Fine Arts is open on Wednesday for its regular hours from 10:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. It will also be open Thursday and Friday from 10:00 a.m. to 9:00 p.m., and all scheduled activities are still slated to take place.
  • The Science Museum of Virginia had a delayed opening on Wednesday (it opened at 11:30 a.m.) and will close at 5:00 p.m. Museum officials are planning on opening for the museum’s regular hours on Thursday and Friday, 9:30 a.m. to 5:00 p.m.
  • The Children’s Museum of Richmond is set to be open for its regular hours on Thursday and Friday, 9:30 a.m. to 5:00 p.m.
  • Lewis Ginter Botanical Garden is open Friday from 10 a.m. until 5 p.m. The garden will not be charging admission since it’ll be a partial opening — some pathways in the garden will be closed because of icy conditions. Garden officials say you should dress for the cold weather if you plan to visit.
