Different from the Spy Museum in a very spooky, creepy, awesome way. Great interactive exhibits, scary photographs, and fascinating facts. We must have spent at least 3 hours and it was still not enough.

This museum was so much fun, and we learned a lot too. I would encourage anyone to go, but it is more fun with a group of people. Although it takes some time to get through everything, and there is a lot of walking involved, it should prove no...continued

It is an excellent museum but you need longer than 2 hours to do it justice.

I had a great time at this museum! I loved the interactive stuff, like "escaping from a prison cell" by crawling through a hole in the wall and getting a print-out of my fingerprint. One of the only things that bothered me was that I didn't get to...continued

Interesting displays covering history and CSI methods. Found descriptions to be a bit busy with small fonts for written material. Lots of spelling errors?? Suggest paying for audio tour, which we did not use as it may be easier than all that...continued

This is a fun and "different" museum. Lots of very interesting facts and figures, and the displays are mostly well done. My only 2 dislikes were the experience wasn't as interactive as I'd hoped (and the museum's website makes it seem), and the...continued

We had a good time at the museum. There is alot to read, so plan to stay for a while. We were there 3 hours, and got about half way through the museum. I especially liked the interactive touch screens, the shooting gallery, and seeing all the mug...continued

When I read to allow 3 hours I thought that was going to be much more time than needed but was wrong. There is a lot to see and read. Very informative and interesting.
