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!!

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. 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.

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..

My favorite museum. So cool, so fun. Expect to spend a lot of time going through the exhibits and reading all the factoids.

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).

This museum is great if you like that kind of stuff. I went with my boyfriend who was interested in the topic. The museum is very well done for what it is.

We very much enjoyed the entire experience. Too bad the written graphics did not reflect the quality of the rest of the exhibit. Spelling, grammar, and punctuation were very poor.

A bit underwhelming in total. Not exactly sure of the target audience. Wouldn't recommend.

After visting the usual museums in DC, this was one of the BEST. It is a MUST see for anyone interested in crime, law enforcement, and investigation. They have some of the most awesome exhibits I have ever seen!
