Naval Academy Museum Would Close In Shutdown

ANNAPOLIS, Md. (AP) — U.S. Naval Academy officials say the USNA Museum would close in a federal government shutdown, and athletic events would be suspended.

However, officials say this weekend’s Special Olympics event will take place as scheduled.

The academy itself will be open normal hours, as will the visitor’s center, USNA Club and Drydock.

As for the midshipmen, classes will continue, with military faculty teaching for furloughed civilian instructors.
