On the day after Valentine’s Day, twosomes gather at the Crime Museum, where they’re handcuffed together, then sent on a twistedly romantic expedition. During their journey, they’ll peruse the Crimes of Passion exhibit, which contains true tales such as the “Valentine’s Vampire,” who was sent to jail for leaving fang-marks on every piece of chocolate he gave to a loved one. In addition to displays on tainted relationships, visitors can explore the museum’s other interactive exhibits, inking themselves with temporary prison tattoos and deciding on a last meal before springing themselves from the joint to analyze blood splatter like modern forensics experts.

Crime Museum

The Crime Museum, sometimes referred to as the National Museum of Crime and Punishment, shines a light on the dark underbelly of society with more than 100 interactive exhibits spread across three stories and 25,000 square feet of gallery space. After resting their weary bones in an unplugged electric chair, fans of CSI can live out television fantasies at the Crime Scene Investigation exhibit, where they learn what it takes to be a forensic scientist and watch professionals in action before trying to determine whether or not fellow museum-goers exhibit the traits of serial killers. The exhibit also serves as a crash course in fingerprinting, DNA testing, fraudulent-check investigation, and dental-impression and ballistics analysis. The museum devotes an entire level to the now-retired set of America’s Most Wanted, providing an adjoining exhibit where fans of the show can step into a green screen for a criminal profile or imaginary Caribbean vacation. The museum’s many permanent exhibits include A Notorious History of American Crime, about the country's felonious forefathers, and an exploration into one of the most heinous masterminds of modern times in the Ted Kaczynski: The Unabomber exhibit.
