    Great experience. Rip off pricing. I took my wife there for their Valentine’s day event. The museum itself was very educational and had far more information than expected. Pros: Very well put together. Great place for families to learn about criminals and the prison system. Even covers some medieval era.Cons: No drinks. I dont mean adult drinks. There was not a water fountain, soda machine or bar on premise. Plan accordingly. Long walk. You will feel like you found a new kind of ikea. No end in site. By the time we got to the csi section we were thirsty and ready to leave. The Valentine’s day event is a scam. For $160 we got the everyday show plus a couple extra signs and fuzzy hand cuffs. The melting pot is cheaper and we get adult beverages.We will go again when our son is older but its at the bottom of the list compared with all the free sites.

    I gave it three stars because there are so really cool items and information in there. However, there were several instances where we found information outdated- even tho they have signs that are updates on cases, it doesnt look like they have been updated in the last year- and it was a super long walk. It felt like the museum was never=ending. Also, with all the the info they gave you, maybe i missed it, but a lot of plaques didn’t give you any background on who the people were or how they were connected- especially in the mobsters area. It was a bit disorganized.

    Visiting this place was just an option. I had the time to visit one museum only and 3 museums worth seeing (according to friends’ suggestions). I chose this one randomly and although I did not know what expected me in the other 2, I do not regret the events taking this turn. The place is incredible and must be seen from everyone who has the opportunity. It is a pity when you come to think of the fact that the most fortunate of all are the citizens of the city and probably the vast majority have never even heard of the museum.

    This was big disappointment. I would not recommend paying money to see this museum, when there are so many great free options in DC.
