Crime Lab


Sometimes the most valuable police work happens in a laboratory. Finding and analyzing forensic evidence is key to building strong cases against criminal suspects, including mobsters. A matching fingerprint or DNA sample can make or break a prosecution. This multimedia experience allows guests to explore the work of crime scene investigators, fingerprint analysts, DNA profilers, ballistics experts and medical examiners. Museum educators provide information and assistance as guests engage in an array of forensic activities. A special ticket is required for this experience. Open daily 10 a.m. to 9 p.m., starting every 30 minutes. Participants must be at least 11 years old.

Funding to support our organization has been provided by Nevada Humanities through Congress and the National Endowment for the Humanities as part of the CARES Act economic stabilization plan of 2020.
