Solve the Crime – Crack the Case
Originally developed with a grant from The National Science Foundation (NSF) for a tour of U.S. science museums, CSI: The Experience™ gives visitors the opportunity to play the role of a crime scene investigator, learning scientific principles and real investigative techniques as they try to solve one of three crime scene mysteries.
Two state-of-the-art crime labs will help visitors piece together the evidence. With input from investigators from the television show, along with their real-life forensic science counterparts, guests will formulate a hypothesis, validate their findings based on scientific evidence and try to crack the case.
From DNA and fingerprint analysis to forensic anthropology and toxicology, visitors will be captivated by hands-on science in a multimedia environment with dazzling special effects — direct from the CSI television series. A video introduction by cast members from the TV show welcomes visitors into the exhibit, leads them through the experience, and then evaluates their crime-solving savvy as they exit.

With more than 1 million visitors per year CSI: The Experience™ is one of the top-blockbuster exhibitions in the USA.
