  • What a great museum. We wished we had more time to really read more of the things. We had a smaller kid in our group though that couldn't read well, so she did not enjoy it as much. Plan on at...

  • Lots of interesting displays and information on criminals past and present. Some of it was kind of bleak and sobering .

  • I really enjoyed seeing all the different periods of crime. I loved the forensic room where could learn about different kinds of forensics. You could also test your skills and see if you could match up some things. We also did the heist at the end. Trying to get through a room of laser beams without setting one off. Loads of fun!
  • I came in about an hour and a half before closing and had to kind of run through it but had an absolute ball! Next time I’ll go as soon as they open because it’s definitely somewhere you could spend all day! It was very clean, informative, and the employees were super friendly as were many of the other patrons which was really nice. They have so many real artifacts from real people and cases as well as several different hands on things showing you step by step how things work. Highly recommend!
