Huntington still closed; Sunday reopening possible

December 2, 2011 |  4:59 pm

The Huntington Library, Art Collections and Botanical Gardens will remain closed through Saturday, the institution announced Friday, because of damage from the high winds that battered the San Gabriel Valley Wednesday night.

A Huntington spokesman said Thursday that a number of large oaks and some palm trees had been blown down in the windstorm. Buildings and other structures were not damaged.

A statement from the San Marino institution said that it hoped to open Sunday because there is a holiday event for members. For the most up-to-date information, visit

The Norton Simon Museum, which closed Thursday, reopened its museum and cafe Friday, but the sculpture garden was closed for maintenance because of storm debris. A spokesman said the museum and cafe would be open for normal hours this weekend, but it wasn't clear when the garden would reopen.
