Event Space


As one of DC’s most arresting and sought-after attractions, the Crime Museum offers a fresh and unexpected alternative to the hotel ballroom or restaurant backroom. We offer partial and full museum closure options to best fit your needs, from cocktail receptions to buffet or seated dinners, the Crime Museum is a unique location for your next off-site meeting or teambuilding activity.

Every event includes museum entry for your guests, featuring fascinating artifacts and interactive exhibits. During full museum closures, your guests will experience the “wow!” factor of exclusive access to a downtown Washington museum, shut down just for them!
