Crime Lab

Overview

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 hands-on, 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 digital and hands-on forensic activities. A special ticket is required for this experience. Open daily 10 a.m.-7 p.m., starting every 30 minutes. Participants must be 11 years old.
