Can you solve the crime? Based on the hit TV show CSI: Crime Scene Investigation, you’ll be the latest recruit to the world of forensic science. Guided by videos featuring cast members and real-life forensic scientists, you’ll examine bullet casings, match DNA to potential suspects and identify the source of a single strand of hair. Complete with forensic crime labs, autopsy rooms and reporting stations, this hands-on experience is sure to plunge you deep into the role of a crime scene investigator.

CSI: The Experience features:

  • Special investigation cards, on which guests will record evidence from one of three different crime scenes.
  • Scientific Inquiry in the following fields: DNA identification, toxicology, forensic anthropology, forensic entomology, forensic pathology, forensic art, firearm and toolmark identification, information technology, latent prints and blood spatter analysis.
  • Access to a variety of tools and technologies, from chemistry equipment and UV light sources, to ballistics identification systems and bullet trap.
  • Highly interactive lab areas where the exhibit’s “investigators” can perform evidence testing at multiple stations.
  • A recreation of the office of Gil Grissom, in which guests will present their findings through the completion of a series of questions.
