Where else can you explore the history of crime and punishment, experience driving and shooting simulators, and learn the real CSI procedures? At the Crime Museum you explore all this and more.
Described by Good Morning America as a "must see for CSI fans," the Crime Museum includes a crime lab and the filming studios for America's Most Wanted. A simulated FBI shooting range, high-speed police-chase, and hundreds of interactives and artifacts pertaining to America's favorite subject fill the 3-floor, 25,000 square foot museum.
