It was really interesting how the museum was organized. It really takes you through a time line of crime. It was really neat and fun. Took us about 2 hours to get through it all and it was nice to be able to be involved in some of the...continued

My 13 year old niece really wanted to tour this museum since she is interested in learning all about CSI work. I was pleasantly surprised that I enjoyed the self-guided tour. We went through at a fast pace of 2 hours. You can easily spend 3...continued

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.

This museum requires alot of reading while visiting. I thought it would be more interactive. Great place if this is an interest of yours.

We spent hours at the Crime and Punishment Museum. It is loaded with fascinating information! It begins with ancient techniques of torture, moves through the Middle Ages then into the Wild West and more contemporary criminals, crimes, punishment...continued

We upgraded for an extra 5 dollars a person and did the audio tour. It was soo worth it. We have been museum hoping all week and this saved us from reading every little bit of information and gave us much more. This was on our top 5 things we...continued

We went on a Friday around 7ish after work..
There was no line & only a few kids running around
We basically had the museum to ourselves to enjoy

The exhibits were great & the Car Chase/Gun Simulation room was an extra bonus!!

Be sure to go with a deal... Was a decent experience, especially if you are not in law enforcement. Some of the things need to be updated but overall an interesting exhibit.

Give yourself at least 2 hrs if you really want to read everything in the museum. Try there mini games such as shooting and driving.

Great museum! Everything was very well exhibited. Like others have said, it took us quite some time (4 hours) just to get through the first floor - we didn't realize there was more than one floor! Admittedly, we do read almost everything there...continued

Great. I absolutely loved it. I'm going back, because I didn't spend the time I wanted to. There are so many cool things to see. I spent 2hrs there and that wasn't nearly enough time to really take in everything. Block out a day and pay a visit.

I think they have done a great job in covering the information related to the subjct. My husband was bored as he felt he knew most of the material. I enjoyed reading the information even with the spelling errors and copies. It is definitely not...continued

My dad was quite upset for not being able to take his afternoon siesta, but once we walked in this place he forgot he was sleepy. My parents had a great time. Since they don't speak English, all the visuals for them were great..

Really cool. Our kids loved it! Although,I would recommend it for kids 8 and up. There is a lot of reading (like most museums).

The museum could be interesting if it organized the information and examined issues around crime and punishment, but instead it's just a bunch of random stuff (too much stuff and way too random) to read with no rhyme or reason. It was also not...continued
