Villa’s pon­cho

The Washington Times Weekly - - National -

Com­ing soon to a mu­seum near you: J. Edgar Hoover’s badge, John Dillinger’s car and the col­lec­tions of Pon­cho Villa and Jesse James.

In part­ner­ship with John Walsh, host of TV’s “Amer­ica’s Most Wanted,” Wash­ing­ton’s new­est mu­seum — the Na­tional Mu­seum of Crime & Pun­ish­ment — un­locks its doors to the pub­lic May 23.

In fact, Mr. Walsh hence­forth will tape his pop­u­lar Fox net­work crime-fight­ing se­ries at the mu­seum’s new, state-of-the-art stu­dio. He also is co-host­ing a grand open­ing re­cep­tion for Wash­ing­ton VIPs to be held on the evening of May 22.

Span­ning three floors, the mu­seum is at 575 Sev­enth St. NW, be­tween E and F streets.
