Had never heard of the museum until I saw the tickets on LivingSocial.com. After reviewing the website, which was enticing,I thought it would be a great day trip from Richmond, VA for my 12 year old son and I to visit the museum. We planned our trip and went to the museum 9/5/2010. Overall, the museum itself is interesting and well done. My son enjoyed it though there is was too much reading in each exhibit to keep him fully engaged in the experience of the museum - which will be the same for most kids his age. The day of our visit, the simulated FBI shooting range and one of the simulated cop cars were not working. This was one of the main appeals of the museum that my son was looking forward to experiencing while there. The kids fingerprinting/photo station was also closed that day. When I inquired about it, I was told that due to lack of staffing, that it was closed for the day. I was very disappointed in the experience we had. I felt it was a bit pricey and overrated - especially to not have the some of the main selling features of the museum operable.
