The Bond Museum in Keswick, Cumbria, England, has closed its doors. The museum held over 30 original screen cars from the James Bond films.

Along with its sister site, Cars of the Stars, the museum is now closed. The collections will be permanently moving to Miami, Florida in the USA.

Proprietor Peter Nelson posted issued this statement on the museums Facebook page: "We are deeply saddened to inform that the Bond Museum and our sister museum Cars of the Stars will be permanently relocating to Miami, Florida. The museum will be open for the final day (06/05/11). Thank you to all those who have visited and supported us in the whole 22 years of the business."

The news comes despite an announcement just last month that it would be open in Keswick through the end of October.

No further details about the move to Miami are available at this time.

Thanks to `Mark Hazard` for the alert.
