The Deal

Prohibition After Hours

Adventurers explore the Roaring Twenties at a time when the museum's doors regularly would be shut tight. Museum-goers wander through an interactive series of exhibits that focus on Prohibition and the history of crime in general, and like apprehended bootleggers and serial jaywalkers, visitors can ink themselves with temporary prison tattoos and decide on a last meal, before springing themselves from the joint to analyze blood splatter like modern forensics experts. Interactive demonstrations in forensic science help museum-goers learn the stories that blood spatters tell before an exploration of prison tattoos shed light on the social orders in the pen.

National Museum of Crime & Punishment

The National Museum of Crime & 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.
