This was a pretty good experience. However, all data and statistics were as of 2006. Also, there were many spelling and grammar errors on the reading material and in one place a sentence started and then the words dropped off the exhibit. ...continued

This was a great deal! The CSI experience was more than what we expected. We invited some friends to come, they paid at the door, so they spent about $20 more. Also, one thing GOLDSTAR should do is offer or let people know about additional...continued

This was my 12 yr old son's favorite museum, although the serial killer exhibits were a bit much for him. It was very interesting, cool interactive exhibits and totally worth the deal we found on Goldstar. It took just over 2.5 hrs to go through,...continued

This was one of the most interesting museums I have been to so far! Even though we got the goldstar reduced rate, I would have paid full price! It took us 3 hours to see everything, so make sure you wear comfortable shoes. We found it less...continued

Very fun and interactive. Best part was the booklet you can buy at the beginning to keep all interested. It makes you read a lot

Very interesting museum. I agree that young children should not see all exhibits, but it is fine for teens and adults. I recommend it.

We enjoyed the museum. The displays, photos, and interactive activities were very informative. We especially enjoyed seeing where they televise "America's Most Wanted".

The staff was extremely friendly and helpful.
You can have your hand stamped, go out for lunch, and...continued

We hit the CSI Section around the time that we had already spent 3 hours in the Crime and Punishment section. I found the exhibits interesting/fascinating/horrifying in the totally visceral way that they were looking for. Absolutely enjoyed it. ...continued

We were very disappointed with this event. It was billed as a "CSI Experience" but it was nothing like the CSI Experience that we had done in NYC. Instead, it really was discounted admission to a museum that had a small CSI experience. We also...continued

Well laid out. Lots to see and do. The workshop on forensic fingerprinting was very good. My children aged 15,13,9 loved it.

Went on a quiet Monday after Christmas - there weren't many people there so we were able to move about at our own pace and didn't need to wait to view an exhibit.
We all truly enjoyed the museum (ages 17 to 54). We took about 3 hours to go...continued

With so much free stuff to do in DC, bringing a group of 7 to this museum was not really worth it. A few had a pretty good time, others not so much. I guess if you want to learn more about medieval torture (punishment), the laws and punishment for...continued
