It was a blast!
Trace · March 22, 2012
This was a surprise gift for my fiance, she is a forensics, Investigators, etc. lover. She said that this was perfect. She would love for an opportunity to actually be able to solve a muder mystery or see an actual or staged murder. There was a muder staged that we were suppose to be an eye witness however we never used the information to report what we saw. Perhaps you can create a scene that would allow visitors to use what they learn to solve a mystery. Everything was great and informative. You made me look like a hero to her for taking her so thank you.

What You'll Get


The first crime and punishment museum was an actual penitentiary, hosting tours that gave guests an up-close look at a prisoner’s life, which often included hard labor, matching jumpsuits, and horrific tour-giving duties. Explore justice in a friendlier environ with today’s Groupon: for $21, you get one ticket for an after-hours tour of the National Museum of Crime and Punishment (a $42 value) on Friday, December 16. Choose from the following six times:

  • 7 p.m.
  • 7:30 p.m.
  • 8 p.m.
  • 8:30 p.m.
  • 9 p.m.
  • 9:30 p.m.

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. During after-hours tours, the museum keeps its doors and cells open into the evening for special excursions that feature all stages of life behind bars. Photo ops abound at this exclusive event, during which amateur art appraisers can try their eyes at a blood-spatter analysis or receive a fake prison tattoo.

After resting their weary feet 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 them 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, fraudulent checks, dental impressions, and ballistics. Guests can also step into a full-scale model of a police station in the Punishment: The Consequence of Crime display. The museum devotes an entire level to the year-round filming 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. Visitors can also peep into the museum’s many permanent exhibits. Step into a contraband time machine and meet our country’s felonious forefathers in the A Notorious History of American Crime before exploring one of the most heinous masterminds of modern times in the recently added Ted Kaczynski: The Unabomber exhibit.
