Our mission at the Crime Museum is to provide guests of all ages with memorable insight into our nation's history of crime and its consequences, law enforcement, forensic science, and the crime scene investigation process through a captivating, interactive, entertaining, and educational experience.
Our goal is to represent law enforcement in a way that gains appreciation and respect for all those who serve and protect. The Crime Museum's hope is that we will influence young minds, whether by creating future cops or forensic scientists or even by providing a safety tip that helps save a life.
In order to stay current and accurate, we ask for your continued support and presence within our museum.
