Herbert Hoover's presidential library has reopened in his Iowa hometown after Congress voted to end the government shutdown.

A representative of the Herbert Hoover Presidential Museum and Library in West Branch said it is once again open to visitors and researchers after being closed since Oct. 1, when funding for its activities ran out.

Hoover was born in the eastern Iowa town of West Branch, where the museum remains a popular tourist attraction. Some downtown businesses near the museum reported a drop in customers while it was closed.

Democratic Rep. David Loebsack of Iowa City cited the closure as an unfortunate impact of the government shutdown.

Hoover was president from 1929 to 1933.
