Camp Dodge military museum closes due to shutdown

JOHNSTON, Iowa (AP) — The Iowa Gold Star Military Museum at Camp Dodge in Johnston will temporarily close due to the federal government shutdown.

The Iowa National Guard announced Friday the museum would be open Saturday but would close beginning Sunday.

Although museum workers are employed by the state, some of the positions receive federal funding.

The museum will remain closed until the federal shutdown ends.

The Iowa Gold Star Military Museum was established in 1985 and is the only federally recognized repository for military artifacts in Iowa.
