Discovery Times Square stages immersive exhibits that open minds to world wonders in the heart of New York City. Developed in cooperation with the National Science Foundation, CSI: The Experience plunges visitors into a 60- to 90-minute, interactive dunk tank of forensic-science clues. Make-believe Marples and Poirots can test their deductive mettle as they solve one of three murder scenarios.
Moving from crime scene to lab with the help of exclusive footage from the cast of CSI, sleuths try their rubber-gloved hands at real-world forensic crime-solving techniques, examining everything from blood-spatter patterns and DNA samples to the mating habits of bullet casings at the exhibit's lab stations. Under the watchful tutelage of CSI impresario Gil Grissom, participants will pinpoint the culprit and earn an official CSI diploma (via email), leaving streets safe for law-abiding citizens and high-school dweebs who don't notice the "Murder Me" signs taped to their backs.
Discovery Times Square
Unlike more traditional museums, Discovery Times Square does much more than simply display artifacts. The space, located in the building once occupied by the New York Times printing presses, encourages visitors to learn through interactive, sensory exhibits. Past shows have taken guests inside the Titanic’s final wreck site, Da Vinci’s ingenious inventions, and the vast collection of riches and bandages owned by King Tut. More than a museum, DTS has featured exhibitions of unparalleled breadth, including Pompeii: The Exhibit, Dead Sea Scrolls: The Exhibition, Terracotta Warriors: Defenders of China’s First Emperor, and most recently The Art of the Brick.
