The JFK Library Twitter account posted a "shutdown notice" on Saturday morning.

Due to the shutdown, the library and museum, along with the research room and online store, are all closed "until further notice."

National Parks and all visitor facilities in Boston are closed, though the Freedom Trail and Black Heritage Trail remain open to visitors.

U.S. Coast Guard Northeast said its Twitter account will only be sharing safety and security information "due to lapse in appropriations."

The USS Constitution Museum, meanwhile, will not be impacted.

"As a cultural institution we believe wholeheartedly in providing public access to our national treasures," said Anne Grimes Rand, president of the USS Constitution Museum.  "As a non-profit partner, the USS Constitution Museum will remain open to the public seven days a week."

The House and Senate are back in session Saturday in an effort to reach a deal to end the shutdown.
