Virginia Aquarium and Marine Science Center Closed Due to Power Outage

Thursday, December 08, 2011

The Virginia Aquarium and Marine Science Center is closing for the rest of the day because of a loss of electrical power earlier this afternoon.  The facility’s main source of power, a line on General Booth Boulevard, was down for approximately a half hour.

The Aquarium is fully equipped with emergency backup generators to preserve animal and marine life, and guest safety.  The facility will reopen tomorrow morning at 9 a.m.
