I personally thought this was just okay. You spend most of the time reading printed materials on the walls. I admit they have some fun ways of presenting the material,... continued

I recommend devoting 3 hours to the museum and doing the labs at the very beginning. Interesting museum and worth it, although a bit long. Lots of reading with some... continued

I thought this was a cool museum. It started out back in the Western times of Billy the Kid, Bonnie & Clyde and moved forward to the present. The factual information,... continued

I took my son & his friend (11 & 12 years old, respectively) after lunch time. The museum was uncrowded, which meant that we could get up close & read about all of the... continued

I took my boyfriend to this event. It was awesome. A great way to spend a Sunday afternoon. Be sure to get there when the doors open because you don't want people blocking your view. I wouldn't mind going again!

I went with a small group that encompassed several age groups. Everyone had a great time--even those that were sure they wouldn't. And the CSI section was a huge hit. We all enjoyed the chance to figure out "whodunit". Great job.

It was nothing special. Considering that Washington has so many free things, I would skip this and go to the FBI tour or the Bureau of Engraving tour (both great fun for kids and free) instead.

It was very interesting. I thought this was only going to take 2 to 2 2/1 hours but it was a lot longer so plan accordingly. There was alot to read and see. We went on a Friday expecting that there would not be a big crowd. But there was.

It was very crowded and the space is already constrained because of the retrofit of the space to the museum exhibits. I felt I could not stop long and read. Some... continued

it's generally good. We liked the interactivity. The CSI room is almost too much information - it would be enhanced by having a knowledgeable guide. It just seemed overwhelming and we had already spent 2 hours looking at the earlier exhibits.

My 11 yr old daughter is a big NCIS fan. She loved this museum. Lots of hands on activity. Expect to spend at least 2-3hrs. Would not recommend for children under 8 you must be able to read and comprehend lots of material.

My husband had such a wonderful time. It is a lot of reading but very intersting. A must see if you like crime scenes and shows such as CSI.

My husband and I go to museums often and have seen almost all of the "new" additions in D.C. but we think the Crime and Punishment museum is one of the very best. It took... continued
