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

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.

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.

My sister-in-law and I went-it is terrific. Set aside at least three hours to do the whole museum!

One of the best museums I have ever been to!! Three hours of very fun and interactive Crime and Punishment activities. Loved the CSI Experience the most. If you do one museum in DC, do this one! The Newseum is also great.
