Aquarium and Historic Houses to Close Sunday

Sandy #008

Saturday, October 27, 2012

Due to Hurricane Sandy, the Virginia Aquarium & Marine Science Center will be closed Sunday. Also, all three historic houses operated by the city – the Francis Land House, the Adam Thoroughgood House and the Lynnhaven House – will be closed Sunday.


No decision has been made yet about city libraries, recreation centers or the Sandler Center for the Performing Arts, which has a Virginia Symphony concert scheduled for Sunday afternoon. We will communicate those decisions as soon as they are made.
