I have been here before, but the first time I took my 67 year old Mom. She has been a fan of AMW since the show started and she was excited to visit. I have to say that the time/day we picked to go was perfect! Because my Mom is older and is...continued

My parents were visiting and they'd done a lot of the touristy things here in DC before so we were looking for something new to do. We loved this museum! The 2nd floor (where you begin) was our favorite! So much history and so well laid out! ...continued

Although I did not personally attend this event, I purchased the tickets for my husband and relatives who visited over the holidays. They had a wonderful time and made comments on how fascinating and informative they found the experience. The...continued

Some of the non-historic material seems worn and dated (such as the model in the CSI experience). There is a LOT or reading in the museum, so do yourself a favor and get the audio tour for $5 it is worth it! Wish there had been more artifacts...continued

Very interesting but would benefit from a place for snacks or to sit down about mid-way through. CSI experience should be nearer beginning, rather than at end. Eye and body fatigue set in so all could not enjoy this part as much even tho' it was...continued

The CSI Experience was very enlightening; the museum had a lot of interactive material, great artifacts, and history. I would suggest allocating at least 2 hours for your visit.

It is a great experience from start to finish. Very informative. There are interactive segments of the museum that add to the day. I highly recommend.

I'm not a museum person but I know I have to subject myself to such activities once in awhile. I spent two hours there and enjoyed it. If I were a museum person, I could have easily spent three hours there. I breezed through the last part that...continued

I went with 14 year old daughter and my 75 year old mom. All three generations had a great time. The displays are very interesting and educational.

This was a family event and we had fun. Finding out about different mobster/gangsters was great. This gave a little history in addition to fun.

It was really fascinating to learn about the history of crime and there was so much info and so much to see. I'm an amputee in a wheelchair and it was very easy for me to maneuver and get to see the entire museum with easy access to elevators....continued

My husband and I took our eleven year old grandson. He enjoyed the A-B-C questions that were on the walls in many rooms. There were not a lot of interactive, computerized exhibits but he enjoyed the ones that were offered. There are two...continued

Interactive; I think one can learn most of this stuff by watching CSI or NCIS shows. Museum was crowded. 96 student group was there.

This is a very interesting place. I am sure that all in attendance will find things of interest, as the museum features historical events that we are all familiar with on some level. There are also many hands on exhibits that make it much more...continued

We had a great time, a lot of things to do and see.
The only thing I did not like, they did not allow the use of flash and the lighting is not that great so you can not preserve the memories
