With a winter storm bearing down on the Triangle, schools are closed and local museums and parks are shutting down or changing their hours in anticipation.

Here's what I know about for Wednesday, Jan. 17:

Marbles Kids Museum and its IMAX theater in downtown Raleigh are closed.

The N.C. Museum of Natural Sciences, N.C. Museum of History and N.C. Museum of Art, all in Raleigh, are closed today.

The Museum of Life and Science in Durham is closed.

The N.C. Zoo in Asheboro is closed today.

Morehead Planetarium and Science Center in Chapel Hill is closed.

Cary Parks, Recreation & Cultural Arts facilities are closed and programs canceled today.

All Raleigh Parks, Recreation and Cultural Resources facilities will operate from noon to 6 p.m., today.

All Durham Parks and Recreation facilities will delay opening until 11 a.m., today.

Before you go anywhere, I'd check in with the location to make sure that plans haven't changed.

WRAL's closings and delays page has more information about hours at schools, businesses and destinations across the Triangle.
