The world’s largest military aviation museum reopens today after a government shutdown shuttered the National Museum of the U.S. Air Force.
The museum had opened for four hours Saturday in the midst of the shutdown until closing at 1 p.m. that day. A spokesperson had said the museum would remain open until it received a federal order to close.
It was due to reopen at 9 a.m. Tuesday.
The Air Force museum, the region’s biggest tourist attraction, has drawn more than 800,000 visitors in each of the last three years.
