Tuesday’s earthquake has caused a few tourist attractions to shutter for the time being.

The Washington Monument, the Washington National Cathedral and the Smithsonian Institution Building, known as the castle, are closed until further notice because of earthquake damage. All other Smithsonian museums, including the National Zoo, will open as scheduled.

The National Building Museum also reported that it will be closed today for inspection.
