WASHINGTON (AP) — Washington’s National Museum of Crime & Punishment has announced it will be closing its doors soon.

The museum’s Chief Operating Officer Janine Vaccarello says terms from a lease agreement are forcing the museum out of its three-story building at the end of September. She says the building owners have the right to ask the museum, which charges $21.95 for an adult ticket, to vacate the property if it doesn’t meet certain sales thresholds.

Vaccarello says the museum would search for other spaces in the area, or would look to partner with another organization to sell its paraphernalia.
