A NOTORIOUS HISTORY OF AMERICAN CRIME:
This particular gallery showcases the evolution of crime and the criminal through the ages, beginning with medieval knights and greed-driven pirates to the gunslingers of the Old American West and today’s white-collar “silent criminals” who hide behind computer screens, stealing private information and identities.
PUNISHMENT: THE CONSEQUENCE OF CRIME:
From a booking room, to mug shots and a lie detector test, to the cold iron bars and claustrophobia of a jail cell, the Crime Museum presents first-hand the severity involved when criminals get caught.
From security personnel and local police officers to such notables as founding FBI Director J. Edgar Hoover and the legendary law enforcement agent Eliot Ness, the NMCP’s Crime Fighting gallery showcases the vast network of crime fighting and investigatory personnel dedicated to making our world as safe as possible.
CRIME SCENE INVESTIGATION:
Learn how to solve crime through the use of forensic science technology such as ballistics, blood analysis, fingerprinting, and dental and facial reconstruction.
