Everything was great! The only thing is that I wish I had more time to see everything. The website said it closed at 8p.m. on the day I attended, but in fact, they closed at 7p.m.

Great Historical Museum for Criminal events. I didn't think it was the best for the 8 and under crowd - Lots of information they didn't need to be exposed to - but, my 7... continued

I have passed this venue many times thinking how corny this must be. However, boo on me. It was one of the best places in DC to visit and I have lived in the area for over 12 years.

It is a museum. There will be lots of reading, be mindful if taking small children. Great for people who enjoy history.

My 14-year-old daughter calls it "funtastic"--you learn about many aspects of crime-solving and punishment (not all of it suitable for young children, however), and the... continued

My friend and I had a great time! There is a lot of reading thought, so if you are not fluent in English you might not understand everything. But it is very interesting and I would definitly recommend it!

Not raving about it but it was a very extensive exhibition with some interactive exercises for the kids. I think this is popular with children because there is so much... continued

Very rewarding experience. Everything from conspiracies, infamous mobsters, unsolved crimes and the America's Most Wanted live set. It was exciting and I would definitely advise others to check it out at their leisure.

We spent about four hours at the National Museum of Crime and Punishment. It's a great museum and it encompasses the entire history of law enforcement in the United States.

As a long-time DC resident, I took advantage of a "comp" offer to visit this museum so that I could advise out of town guests on whether to go. It's ok I guess - but I... continued
