The displays were ok, but not worth the money spent to view them.
The extra CSI Experience / workshop was real poor / DO NOT WASTE YOUR TIME or $$.

the first part is a bit dull, text/reading and display intensive while the seconed half is more interestingly laid out, more interactive and engaging. also, the second half has the more recent criminal information, like timothy mcveigh, abignale,...continued

The gory details of crime intrigued our group; I liked the scene setting music in the different rooms. I would recommend a break between the top (first) floor and the 'crime lab' because there's too much info to absorb all at once. It's not...continued

The museum is very interesting and there are a few interactive things to try. There is a lot of reading to be done -- nearly everything has a great deal of information and it took us nearly 3 hours to complete our visit. Having more seating...continued

The museum is pretty interesting. My sisters and I spent about 6 hours there, and we read and looked at almost everything. We liked it overall and found it enjoyable. However, it got to be disturbing after a while, and should not be for young...continued

The museum artifacts, scavenger hunt and low price totaled a wonderful outing for my family. The displays were interesting and occasionally jaw dropping. I learned while having fun searching the museum for a stolen necklace. There was a $10 fee...continued

There was something for everyone... medieval torture to NCIS. The displays were very interesting. The museum was not overly crowded. We spent three hours there. Very easy metro access -- Gallery Place is a block away.

This museum is very informative. Love the interactive exhibits. This was my second visit but saw things I had missed during my first visit.

This Museum is a fraud. It's overpriced to start with and anything interactive costs extra. The exhibits contain replicas (my son pointed that out having seen many of the real artifacts at other museums) and the write ups could have been written...continued

This was a great exhibit. I thought it was gonna be short but it going on and on. Lots of fun and interesting information for your money. Loved the CSI part and the shooting practice range.

This was a great deal! The CSI experience was more than what we expected. We invited some friends to come, they paid at the door, so they spent about $20 more. Also, one thing GOLDSTAR should do is offer or let people know about additional...continued

This was my 12 yr old son's favorite museum, although the serial killer exhibits were a bit much for him. It was very interesting, cool interactive exhibits and totally worth the deal we found on Goldstar. It took just over 2.5 hrs to go through,...continued

This was one of the most interesting museums I have been to so far! Even though we got the goldstar reduced rate, I would have paid full price! It took us 3 hours to see everything, so make sure you wear comfortable shoes. We found it less...continued

Very fun and interactive. Best part was the booklet you can buy at the beginning to keep all interested. It makes you read a lot

Very interesting museum. I agree that young children should not see all exhibits, but it is fine for teens and adults. I recommend it.
