Review from Kristen Browne

We LOVED the event. There was so much great info. We were there for 2.5 hrs and only got through the first level and a half before they closed. I only wish we had gotten there earlier in the day to have enough time to get through the whole museum....continued

My teenage kids really liked it. The kids were really interested and reading everything. For myself, I would give it 4 stars.

There wasn't much to see for the money and it was very crowded.

Be sure to go with a deal... Was a decent experience, especially if you are not in law enforcement. Some of the things need to be updated but overall an interesting exhibit.

I enjoyed the Museum. Exhibits were very informative. Definitely wouldn't have paid the full entry price though.

I was really impressed with the content of this museum - the depth of information was much greater than I expected, and it provided a full afternoon for my nephew, husband and I.

My 14 yr. old son and his friend went yesterday-they reported it was a great experience overall! The medallion hunt ($10 extra) and the interactive displays were their favorite, and they recommend it to other teenage boys. They didn't have the...continued

Review from Celeste Patel

One of the best museums I have ever been to!! Three hours of very fun and interactive Crime and Punishment activities. Loved the CSI Experience the most. If you do one museum in DC, do this one! The Newseum is also great.

This museum requires alot of reading while visiting. I thought it would be more interactive. Great place if this is an interest of yours.

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