Boston attracts millions of visitors each year for its array of historic sights and tours. Many of those are funded by the government, which means your January sightseeing might be impacted, depending on what you're looking to do in Beantown. We've combed through the list of some of the region's top attractions to give you a better sense of what's open and what's closed.
• Bunker Hill Monument (While travelers can't visit the top of the obelisk or the visitors center, the surrounding park remains open)

• Charlestown Navy Yard Visitors Center
• USS Constitution and Museum
• The Freedom Trail
• Museum of African American History (Guided tours of the Black Heritage Trail won't go on during the shutdown)

As they say, it's "best to call ahead" so guests may want to call or check an individual attraction's website for further information.
