ST. LOUIS — The International Bowling Museum and Hall of Fame is leaving St. Louis for Arlington, Texas.

The museum says its board of trustees made the decision this week.

The Museum and Hall of Fame will be moved to a new development that will include the United States Bowling Congress and the Bowling Proprietors Association of America.

The hall and museum building in St. Louis was sold to the Ballpark Village partnership, owned in part by the St. Louis Cardinals. The partnership had offered the museum an opportunity to remain in downtown St. Louis, where it has been since 1984.

Spokeswoman Susan Ryan said the St. Louis museum would stay open through the baseball season.
