The most interesting museum I have been in yet. My friend and I were in there for four hours and still did not get to read everything we wanted to.

The museum needs varied repairs. It begins in a narrow hallway and a young child repeatedly carried on for 2 1/2 hours, grrrrrr. I tried many times to skip exhibits to avoid her loud whining. One employee reeked of cigarette smoke and also made my...continued

Very interesting if you are into things like this. If you are, then you will like the exhibit. Long but worth it.

Every child or teenager should see this exhibit. There are alternatives to a life of crime always. My 11 year ols thanked me by the end!

My teenage kids really liked it. The kids were really interested and reading everything. For myself, I would give it 4 stars.

We LOVED the event. There was so much great info. We were there for 2.5 hrs and only got through the first level and a half before they closed. I only wish we had gotten there earlier in the day to have enough time to get through the whole museum....continued

I was really impressed with the content of this museum - the depth of information was much greater than I expected, and it provided a full afternoon for my nephew, husband and I.
