Higgins Armory Museum to close

The Higgins Armory Museum in Worcester, for almost eight decades the only museum in the country devoted solely to arms and armor, will close for good in December — the end of an institution renowned for its castlelike building and fanciful activities as well as for its historical treasures.

The museum’s interim director, Suzanne W. Maas, will announce the closure Friday.
