The Deal

After Hours Date Night @ The Crime Museum

Nothing brings a couple closer together than being handcuffed to each other–an experience that The Crime Museum will replicate as a part of its ongoing After Hours series. During this event, the museum keeps the cellblock open for fun, interactive, and educational activities. At stations set up throughout the museum, solo and paired patrons wearing cuffs can receive prison tattoos, learn how to analyze blood spatters, and participate in hands-on forensic science demos. Guests are encouraged to wear comfortable shoes.

National Museum of Crime and Punishment- Fright at the Museum

The National Museum of Crime and Punishment shines a light on the dark underbelly of society with more than 100 interactive events 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 can learn what it takes to be a forensic scientist and watch professionals in action before trying to determine whether 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’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 Ted Kaczynski: The Unabomber.
