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.

If you know of more places, post them in the comments section below or on the CBS 6 Facebook page.

    V DOT FEEL FREE TO HIT THE SUBDIVISION ROADS ANYTIME NOW. LAST TIME I CHECKED MOST HAD STATE ROUTE NUMBERS ON THEM SO YEAH ITS ON YOU GUYS.

    Too many stuck in their own driveways are bad enough at the least clear out the sub-roads. School will always be closed otherwise folks. You can’t expect those oversized cheese mobiles to get in and out of some of these narrow circles and roads when the temperatures are not going over freezing in the week to come. If you want schools back up do this or just do away with transportation all together and let parents start taking their kids to school.
