This museum was the favorite of our family for our whole vacation. It had something for everyone in our family from age 54 to 8. We especially enjoyed the interactive driving for a police cruiser and the shooting range. My kids couldn't get...continued

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 spent 3 1/2 hrs and could have stayed longer. Fun and interesting. Spy Museum is good, but CSI is better

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.

We went primarily because our 15-year-old grandson was visiting and, over the years, we have taken him to about every other museum in DC, plus he and my husband are CSI fans. It was pretty interesting, and we enjoyed the fact that it was not...continued

I enjoyed the overall experience, but my 14 yo daughter gave it 3 stars. Learning about the history and details of famous crimes was of more interest to me than her. The CSI experience was very interesting, but had lots of reading to understand...continued

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!

America's Most Wanted is taped in the museum and you can watch the crew working and preparing for the show. AWESOME.

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 drive, participate in a shoot out among others. It is fun but it is a very...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 year old son enjoyed it a lot, the history portions more-so than the crime lab....continued
