Published:
SEATTLE -- Supporters of the Seattle Veterans Museum have lost their battle to save the institution.
KING-TV reported that a shortage of money has led Todd Crooks to close the museum's doors after 10 years in downtown Seattle.
Crooks, a Veteran himself, started the museum with his personal collection. Over the years donations helped it grow. Today there are artifacts from the Revolutionary War to the War on Terror. Many of the items have a local tie to Seattle.
Recently there hasn't been enough money or volunteers to keep the place going.
On Friday night, Crooks packed everything into boxes to go into storage. He is looking for someone who can reopen the museum in a new place.
