      WASHINGTON (AP/WJLA) - The Smithsonian's Natural History Museum closed briefly Thursday for emergency technology repairs.

      The museum said that a malfunction of its information-technology network necessitated the repairs.

      The museum said that none of its collections have been damaged.

      A spokesperson said the museum had reopened by Thursday afternoon.

      Smithsonian museums are typically open every day of the year except for Christmas.
