PHOTOS: LA's Hall of Justice once home to notorious criminals

LOS ANGELES (KABC) -- Hundreds of historic artifacts belonging to the Los Angeles County Sheriff's Department will soon be moved to a new museum at the historic Hall of Justice in downtown Los Angeles.

The iconic 14-story building, which was closed as a result of damage from the 1994 Northridge earthquake, reopened in October 2014 following a $233 million renovation.

Built in 1925, the Hall of Justice was a central hub for L.A. County law enforcement, home to the sheriff's department, the coroner and the court system.

Crews worked to preserve some remarkable features, including courtrooms and the original jail cells that housed the likes of notorious serial killer Charles Manson and Sirhan Sirhan, who killed Sen. Robert F. Kennedy.
