Armament Museum closed

EGLIN AIR FORCE BASE, Fla. - The Air Force Armament Museum just outside Eglin Air Force Base closed to the public today as part of the government shutdown. The museum was opened Monday, but following a review of guidance from the Air Force and the Department of Defense, it was determined that opening the museum did not fit within the list of operations that can continue to be supported during the lapse in appropriations.
