    Walk through three floors and explore history of crime- fighting and punishment to cutting-edge interactive labs and simulators. Experience hands-on exhibits and check out medieval guillotines, learn about past notorious criminals such as Bonnie and Clyde and Al Capone, and make an escape from a jail cell. Visitors can experience up-close the newest technologies today for fighting crime and catching the bad guys. Try the FBI Shoot Out and the high-speed police chase simulators, or visit the full CSI Lab and conduct forensic investigations. The museum also houses the actual America's Most Wanted Studio where visitors can learn more about community involvement in fighting crime. The museum offers a variety of educational and interactive activities for people of all ages. It's so much fun, it's a crime! - Shirley Hsieh
