BIG ISLAND (HawaiiNewsNow) - The federal government shutdown also resulted in many being turned away when visiting one of Hawaii's national parks. Come Tuesday, visitors will be let in.

With the end of the shutdown, Hawaii Volcanoes National Park and Haleakala National Park will reopen.

Volcano park officials said they will reopen with normal operations on Tuesday at 8 a.m.

Those wanting to catch the sunrise at the house of the sun — Haleakala — may also do so Tuesday morning.

Park officials want to remind visitors that anyone wanting to enter the park between 3 a.m. and 7 a.m. to watch the sunrise must have reservations to do so. Although temporarily taken offline, reservation may be made through the website by clicking here.

Congress approved a three-week funding deal that temporarily ends the federal government shutdown.
