When we purchased our tickets for the Big Bus tour we were given coupons for free entry to the Crime and Punishment Museum and decided to give it a whirl.
We were really impressed with the quality of the museum - you start off with torture tools from many many years ago and then work through different eras including the wild west and gangsters. This was all very interesting and the museum got better and better as we went around. We particularly liked the sections on investigations including the role of the Police and Crime Scene Investigators (fabulous section on CSI including a crime scene, autopsy, DNA testing, ballistics and fingerprints).
There were also interactive exhibitions which gave us the opportunity to drive a car simulator for a high speed chase and a shooting range simulator.
The only problem for us was the fact that we didnt allow enough time to fully look at everything. Sadly the weather had been poor on our first couple of days so we were really packing stuff into our last few days.
An excellent experience and we recommend this to anyone who has an interest in crime
