exciting, in-depth view into all perspectives of law, crime, enforcement, and punishment. Not for the faint of heart.

I really enjoyed the experience, it was a lot of information to take in and it is kids friendly as well. There are some very good interactive exhibits where you can... continued

I took my soon to be 20 year old goddaughter. We both had a blast. My goddaughter made the comment that she thought some of the instruments and displays were a little too brutal or graphic for the age group running around the museum.

I took my 10 and 14 year old nieces and they enjoyed the interactive exhibits. I myself enjoyed learning a few things. It was time well spent. I would defenitely go again.

I took my college-aged daughter for a fun day out in the cold. We really enjoyed the day.

I was sick during the day we had tickets, but the managers allowed us to come the following week. The museum is set up like the Spy Museum, so you need a LOT of time to go throught it.

Im glad I didn't pay full price for this museum but even the discount price is too much. All the things I saw in there I have read about or seen on TV before. There was nothing amazing or exciting to see.

Interesting collection. Like some other reviewers, I felt some of the exhibits were too wordy. I suppose that's better than too little detail. Two of us went - my 12... continued

Loved it! Was a lot of reading, but I enjoyed the experience. There was a lot of hands-on things for the kids, so my 5 year old was entertained enough.

Museum was worth visiting - kids had a great time! I'd recommend this to other families esp. those who want to see a CSI lab set-up.

My family enjoyed this museum. I have boys 16, 15, 10 and 9. It could be seen by some as glorifying criminals, but truthfully I found the whole thing interesting. ... continued

Over 30 exhibits move you through a small but very effectively-organized space near the Convention Center. There are a number of interactive exhibits, but mostly one... continued

Really enjoyed it! This place is HUGE - could take up a whole day. Definitely going back, because I could not take it all in on one trip!

Really good museum, lots to see but felt information overload. There's a lot to read, which can slow you down. And with multiple floors best give yourself at least 3... continued
