The crime and punishment museum was my 11 year-olds favorite thing in D.C. Buy the detective challenge book. My kids shared a single book and had fun finding the clues to solve the case. Worth the money.

The displays were ok, but not worth the money spent to view them.
The extra CSI Experience / workshop was real poor / DO NOT WASTE YOUR TIME or $$.

There was something for everyone... medieval torture to NCIS. The displays were very interesting. The museum was not overly crowded. We spent three hours there. Very easy metro access -- Gallery Place is a block away.

This was a great exhibit. I thought it was gonna be short but it going on and on. Lots of fun and interesting information for your money. Loved the CSI part and the shooting practice range.
