Friends & Family Forensics

Our forensic programs are now available for private bookings!

Come with your friends and family and see if you’re up to the task of solving a Break & Enter or Kidnapping crime!

Price includes Museum admission, the 1-hour guided forensic activity, plus a mini-tour. You are welcome to explore the rest of the museum at your own pace after your forensics activity.

*NEW* We are now able to offer private tours with this program. Instead of doing the Forensics Program and a mini-tour, you are able to book a 1-hour private tour.

Due to COVID-19, visitors must wear face masks while in the museum. Our staff will be wearing masks and maintaining physical distancing protocols.

*Investigations are available by pre-booking only.

Program Options

Break & Enter Investigation
(Ages 10-13)

Someone has broken into our City Analyst's Laboratory! It’s up to you, Detectives, to look at the evidence and decide which of the suspects is responsible. You’ll get to examine fingerprints and more!

Kidnapping Investigation 
*Content Warning: Drugs*
(Ages 14+)

Our City Analyst has been kidnapped!

By looking at all the collected material evidence, including impressions and DNA evidence from the crime scene, you will piece together the connections between the suspects and the sequence of events leading up to our Analyst’s kidnapping. Can you save our City Analyst and uncover the suspect’s motive?

Private Tour
*Content Warning: True Crime*
(All Ages)

Join us for a guided tour of our current exhibits and historical spaces in the museum, including the former Coroner’s Courtroom, City Morgue and Autopsy Facilities. Learn about the history and significance of the City Analyst’s Laboratory and their role in developing forensic technology.
