ALERT: Smithsonian Museums Closed Today and Tomorrow

A quick announcement for our Washington, DC readers: Due to the snowstorm blanketing the D.C. region, all area museums, including the National Zoo and the Udvar-Hazy branch of the National Air and Space Museum, will be closed to the public today, December 19, and tomorrow, December 20.

Check SI Alerts for more information.

Stay stafe, and if you still want to enjoy the snow, there is an impromptu snowball fight happening at the intersection of 14th and U St. in downtown Washington.
