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.
