Description

Every year, around 1 billion Valentine cards are sent across the United States as a symbol of affection. But this Valentine’s Day, those darker romantics among us have a new way to show their love for their significant other, courtesy of the National Museum of Crime and Punishment. Back by popular demand, couples are invited this Valentine’s Day weekend to visit the museum and experience Crimes of Passion, a special exhibit unlike anything seen before.

Upon entering the museum, our on-staff wardens will bind couples together and lead them on their way to tour the three floors of the museum. As they view over 600 exhibits regularly featured at the museum, they will also enjoy special exhibit boards placed throughout explaining various crimes of passion, many of which took place in the D.C. metropolitan area. Couples will delight their dark side with true stories such as the “Valentine’s Vampire,” all while being bound to one another during this unique Valentine’s Day journey.
