Out: Crime Museum Receives a Death Sentence


National Museum of Crime & Punishment has lost its lease and will close its doors at 575 7th St. NW after more than seven years, on Oct. 1. The museum of crime-related exhibits, at once hands-on and eye-catching, could ask an admission price of $20. “We are incredibly disappointed that we were asked to leave our building and did everything possible to try and work with our landlords to stay,” stated Janine Vaccarello, chief operating officer of the Crime Museum. The museum will continue its walking tours and other educational programs.
