Very interesting stuff to see and in-depth history of crime and punishment through the ages. I was lucky enough to go through right after a large school field trip group had just gone through, so it was very quiet and nice. :
This was my 15-year-old granddaughter's first choice so glad we were able to go. She was thrilled!
Great fun - my 16 year old loved it as "it wasn't like a typical museum - such fun!". We bought the treasure hunt option which really added to the excitement. Very well designed and presented.
This we will definitely recommend so much to see and take in make sure you give yourself plenty of time as you really do not want to miss anything.
This museum is great!! If you are a fan of police procedural shows, America's Most Wanted, any of the CSI shows you will love this museum. Lots of interesting (and sometimes gruesome!) facts about crime and punishmnent throughout history.
Very interesting museum. A lot of information and interaction. I recommend doing the driving and shooting simulations, these were really fun.
This museum was incredible! I learned about the fascinating history of crime in the United States and discovered so much I never knew before. The whole place is full of exhibits and fun facts, not your average museum! I would recommend it to people of all ages.
Amazing museum and well worth our money! There's so much to do inside, you'll never want to leave!
This was interesting museum but a lot to read and more for older teens and adults I would say but we enjoyed it as it was our groups ages.
It was a great experience. However it seemed strange to start with pirates. It should have began with 17th system of justice. The exhibits were good. Be prepared for information overload. They could have had more guest seating as you get tired standing trying to take in all that is there. More interactive displays. Go see it is worth it, but allow at least 4 hours and bring small folding stool.
very good, though would have expected more on the punishment side of things, focused heavily on individual criminals and what their crimes were, not so much on the punishment
Very interesting; enjoyed the hands on exhibits including the police car simulator.
My grandson really wanted to visit this museum while in D.C. It was easy to find and very interesting with lots of interactive things to do. The VERY reasonably priced audio guide was well worth it. I learned a lot about the criminals of days gone by all over the world and some gruesome punishments.
Great ! ! !
Information following our booking stated we could visit up until 9pm. We arrived at 6.30pm to find the museum closing. We had travelled to the venue especially and had to take the metro to get there. We were able to use our tickets the following day but it meant a return visit.
Something for everyone. Can spend hours in the museum or rush through and not get as much out of it. Generally the adults will get more out of it, but the kids have plenty of hands on stuff to do while the adults read and reminisce. Very close to the Ford Theater where Lincoln was assassinated and a must see so you could combine them. Also close to a metro stop so no need for a cab. Enjoy!
Not as good as the spy museum but still a good morning for older children. Teenagers in particular will like the fear factor.
Some interesting things in here. Ok to kill a couple if hours but not really a must see.
