Review from Culture Bearer

The first portion of the exhibit was rather lame, but it got better. The history of crime and punishment was initially presented sort of chronologically, so the early periods used display and interactive methods that seemed very dated. Again, it...continued

Review from Camille Harris

This museum was so much fun, and we learned a lot too. I would encourage anyone to go, but it is more fun with a group of people. Although it takes some time to get through everything, and there is a lot of walking involved, it should prove no...continued

It is an excellent museum but you need longer than 2 hours to do it justice.

Love it..... got booked for possession, stood in the line up, and escape from jail. Went live on America's Most Wanted. Good fun.

I had a great time at this museum! I loved the interactive stuff, like "escaping from a prison cell" by crawling through a hole in the wall and getting a print-out of my fingerprint. One of the only things that bothered me was that I didn't get to...continued

Interesting displays covering history and CSI methods. Found descriptions to be a bit busy with small fonts for written material. Lots of spelling errors?? Suggest paying for audio tour, which we did not use as it may be easier than all that...continued

Review from Tmiller410@hotmail

This is a fun and "different" museum. Lots of very interesting facts and figures, and the displays are mostly well done. My only 2 dislikes were the experience wasn't as interactive as I'd hoped (and the museum's website makes it seem), and the...continued

When I read to allow 3 hours I thought that was going to be much more time than needed but was wrong. There is a lot to see and read. Very informative and interesting.

Review from NDM

I have passed this venue many times thinking how corny this must be. However, boo on me. It was one of the best places in DC to visit and I have lived in the area for over 12 years.

It was a great time. So many things to read and look at. I wish I had more time. I got there 2 hours before closing and still hadnt finished with the first floor 15 minutes before closing. The CSI area was awesome, i wish i had been able to play,...continued

It was a great experience. I learned alot of how "behind the scenes" of an investigation works. I attended a lab class and learned how they test/examine blood and DNA. Would definitely recommend it.
