Read on Warbirds News:

The Public Relations office of the National Museum of the U.S. Air Force has distributed  press release announcing the immediate closing of the museums.  “The National Museum of the U.S. Air Force is temporarily closed, effective Oct. 1, 2013, due to the federal government shutdown. All museum events and activities have been suspended until an appropriation bill or continuing resolution is enacted.If the museum reopens by Oct. 6, 2013, Fall Home School Day will continue as planned.Please watch the museum’s website,, and local media outlets for information about when the museum’s normal operations will resume.”

This is obviously due to  the Senate has rejected the House’s latest short-term government funding deal, setting up a government shutdown at 04:00 GMT.
