A family takes a trip to the Virginia Museum of Fine Arts to get out of the house on a snow day.
RICHMOND (WRIC) - This winter, days off from school have been more of the norm than a novelty. A lot of kids are looking for something to do, somewhere to go. And that's where local museums come in.
He's far away from his classroom at Linwood Holton Elementary, but Louis Raffenot isn't taking the day off. This fifth grader is on a gallery scavenger hunt at the Virginia Museum of Fine Arts with his grandma, brother and sister.
"I want to do the scavenger hunt and each lunch," he says.
VMFA is open 365 days a year, rain or shine - or snow - so it's one visitor after another.
"It’s a good education for them too and a great adventure to go through all these areas of the museum," says Grandmother Cyane Lowden.
