Crime Museum to Close Indefinitely Starting September 30

The National Museum of Crime & Punishment, or Crime Museum, is being kicked out of its Penn Quarter location. The COO of the Crime Museum Janine Vaccarello announced that the museum's landlord has asked the museum to vacate the premises and close their doors on September 30. There is no set date for when the museum will open its doors again in another location. According to Washingtonian, the museum will be closed for an indefinite period of time. There are still no reports yet on which areas of Washington, D.C. the Crime Museum staff will focus on for their next location. After closing, the museum will continue to host the Assassinations in the Capital Walking Tour, traveling forensic educational programs, and other team building activities. If interested in checking out the forensic science workshops, police chase simulators, or Ted Bundy's car, the museum's hours of operation are 10 a.m. to 7 p.m. from Sunday through Thursday and 10 a.m. to 8 p.m. on Friday and Saturday.
