National Museum of Crime & Punishment

Opened in 2008, this three-floor, 25,000 square-foot building is dedicated to law, order and life gone horribly wrong.  Home to the studios for the TV show “America’s Most Wanted,” the five galleries of interactive exhibits at the Crime Museum (as it’s colloquially known) include an Old West jail cell, a history of the Mob, and a simulated FBI shooting range.

The Crime Museum’s founder, an Orlando-based attorney named John Morgan, displays one of his greatest treasures here: the bullet-riddled 1934 Ford sedan from the 1967 movie, Bonnie and Clyde. One of the most popular exhibits, though, is the opportunity to investigate and solve a crime step-by-step, keeping track of clues and ending in a fully-outfitted crime lab.

The Gallery Place Metrorail station, serving the Red, Yellow and Green Lines, is around the corner from the museum and just across F Street. Parking is available on surrounding streets and in the Verizon Center parking lot; the lot’s entrance is on 6th Street, just south of F Street.
