The Colonial Williamsburg web site sums it up,
Colonial Williamsburg is open during the government shutdown.
The Colonial Williamsburg Foundation is a privately funded, not-for-profit organization and is not affected by the federal government shutdown. All activities and events will go on as planned.As with Mount Vernon, when we lived back east we purchased annual passes at Colonial Williamsburg and visited repeatedly.
Here is the Foundation's overview,
Historic Area Overview
The restored area measures about a mile long and half a mile wide. There are continuous shuttle buses looping from the parking area, circling the town, with multiple stops along the periphery, as well as in the city proper.
