Schools throughout the Washington, D.C. region and the Federal government are shut down today due to a winter snow storm.

The Smithsonian Institution announced that only the Zoo will be closed today due to the snow. All of the museums on the National Mall, as well as the Anacostia Community Museum and the National Portrait Gallery and the Smithsonian American Art Museum will open their doors to the public today. Hours for operation can be found here.
