DAYTON, Ohio (WDTN) – The National Museum of the U.S. Air Force temporarily closed due to government shutdown.

That’s according to a release sent Saturday afternoon.

The last tweet from the National Museum of the United States Air Force Base from Saturday, January 20 reads:

The same post was made on its Facebook page and encourages the public to check the social media pages and the website for updates on when the museum will reopen.

All museum events and activities, including the museum’s Family Day program, have been suspended until an appropriation bill or continuing resolution is enacted.

If the museum reopens by Jan. 27, 2018, the Reds Caravan event will continue as planned.

The U.S. government shut down at midnight after Congress failed to resolve a partisan standoff over immigration and spending.
