On December 14, the Crime Museum opens its doors for an after-hours extravaganza commemorating the 80th anniversary of the end of Prohibition. Inviting guests to dress up in their slickest Roaring Twenties finery, the museum leads visitors through an interactive series of exhibits that focus on Prohibition and the history of crime in general. 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. Of-age guests can jitterbug over to a Canadian Club tasting table, sipping on whiskey brewed north of the border, just as drinkers once did in 1920s speakeasies.

National Museum of Crime and Punishment

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.
