ST. CLAIR SHORES, Mich. (AP) - A museum in the Detroit area is closing, with its founder hoping to move near to its namesake’s origins.

The Macomb Daily (https://bit.ly/1Yk4aPp ) reports the Arsenal of Democracy museum in St. Clair Shores is shuttering. Museum director John Lind, who is a veteran, says he wants the new site to be near as possible to an old Warren plant site where tanks were made for World War II.

Lind prefers that the museum stay in Macomb County. It spent roughly 15 years in Shelby Township before it moved three years ago to St. Clair Shores.

Lind says more room is needed for the museum to hold a growing collection, which includes tanks, large military vehicles and other military items.
