Confederacy museum makes cuts (VA)

Breaking News

For the first time in its 110-year history, the Museum and White House of the Confederacy will cut its operating hours.

The museum will close on Wednesdays, from Labor Day to Memorial Day. In addition, the White House will be closed for public tours in January and February.

The moves come a few months after approval of the state budget that awarded the museum just $50,000 of a $700,000 grant the downtown institution had requested for fiscal 2006-08. The money would have been used to reverse the museum's deficit, expected to reach $700,000 this year.
