I took 3 kids aged 7 to 14. It was interesting. I wouldn't take a child less than 7 because some of the stuff is gruesome (including the mideaval display at the beginning). Lots of interesting '30s-'40s gangster era items and history. The current day CSI type stuff is on the second floor (you start on the 3rd floor). America's Most Wanted stuff is on the 1st floor (actually basement).
