Purchase the vip. Wish we could have. Due to work schedule we had to take a later time and missed out on the vip time slots. It was full of info. And fun hands on interactive activities, we loved it and plan to do it again! Thanks Groupon!

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, terrible food, and horrific tour-giving duties. Explore justice in a friendlier environ with today’s Groupon to the National Museum of Crime and Punishment. Choose from the following options:

  • For $10, you get one adult museum admission (a $21.15 value, including tax). This option expires on November 30, 2011.

  • For $21, you get one ticket for an after-hours tour of the museum (a $42 value) on September 23. Choose from the following times:

    • 7 p.m.
    • 7:30 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. Step into a contraband time machine and meet our country’s felonious forefathers in the A Notorious History of American Crime exhibit before exploring one of the most heinous masterminds of modern times in the recently added Ted Kaczynski: The Unabomber exhibit. After resting their weary feet in an unplugged electric chair, guests can live out television fantasies at the Crime Scene Investigation exhibit, which serves as a crash course in fingerprinting, DNA, and ballistics, or they can 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 have their child’s fingerprints taken for a national database.

For after-hours exclusive events, the museum keeps its doors open into the evening for five special tours that dive even further into the depths of depravity. Take a field sobriety test or receive a fake prison tattoo as you experience all the stages of life behind bars. Photo ops abound at this exclusive event, which concludes with a display of a smuggled-in manuscript of Dostoyevsky’s classic novel.

About 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.
