— The North Carolina State Capitol, the N.C. Museum of History, the Archives and History/State Library building, and the Capitol Area Visitor Center will be closed on Saturday, June 12, due to citywide protests following the G-8 Summit in Georgia.

Officials with the N.C. Department of Cultural Resources made the decision Thursday after a permit was given to protest at the Childrens Garden, which is close to the buildings.

All public programs scheduled for Saturday at those facilities are canceled.

The Museum of History will re-open Sunday from 12 p.m. to 5 p.m. The State Capitol will re-open on Sunday from 1 p.m. to 4 p.m., and the Visitor Center also will re-open on Sunday from 1 p.m. to 4 p.m.

The State Library is not open on Sunday.
