LAS VEGAS -- The Liberace Museum will close its doors next month. After 31 years of operation, the museum will close to focus on its monetary contributions on the Liberace Foundation. 

"On behalf of the Board of Directors, we feel it is important to close the museum to ensure the future of the Liberace Foundation and to keep the legacy of Liberace alive through its continued scholarship program," said Jeff Koep, Chair of the Liberace Foundation.

So far more than $6 million in scholarships have been awarded to 2,700 students.

As for the memorabilia at the museum, it will be maintained while a national touring exhibit is planned.

The board will also continue to research options for a location change to make the museum more accessible to potential patrons.

The Liberace Museum will close its doors Sunday, October 17.
