REDDING, Calif. - The Northern California Veterans Museum and Heritage Center has been packing their stuff up and putting all their items in storage.
The museum says their new landlord raised the rent to the point where they could not afford to remain at their current facility.
Founder Rob Burroughs was busy moving items into storage when KRCR News Channel 7 saw him on Thursday. The museum sat at their location off of Airport Road for about three years. But since having a new landlord, the museum which is mostly made up of volunteers, couldn't afford the amount of money the new landlord was asking for.
This left the museum with no other choice but to temporarily close.
"We will be opening a brand new museum here, hopefully within anywhere from 90 days to a year, depending upon the facility," Burroughs said. "What we really wanna make sure, at this time is, that we don't get into another lease situation were we will build a beautiful location and then we have to take everything down again."
The museum says the still do not know how long it will take until they find a new place.
If you would like to donate money to the museum you can call them at (530) 378-2280.
