RICHMOND, Va. (AP) — The Science Museum of Virginia is renaming a theater in honor of a supporter who donated $1 million.

The Richmond Times-Dispatch ( ) reports that the theater's new name, Ms. Barbara Thalhimer Theater, and Thalhimer's gift will be announced Wednesday.

Museum director Richard Conti says the donation will go into a fundraising campaign and isn't directed toward a single project.

The Thahimer family has supported the museum since its beginning in 1970.
