7. What will visitors do as they walk through the exhibit?

Upon entering, you will be briefed via video and then directed to one of three staged crime scenes. Once on the scene, you will use your investigator’s notebook to examine the evidence and determine what you believe to be the important clues. After you complete your crime scene investigation, you will compare your clues with those of a real crime scene investigators and determine which clues need further analysis.

Then, you will proceed to the labs to investigate your findings. You will also visit the medical examiner for your autopsy report and note the important medical evidence. CSI characters and real-life experts are “working” via video in our virtual labs to explain tire track comparison, blood spatter analysis, firearms technology comparison, and much more; use the data they provide to help you examine your specific crime scene clues in the lab. You may be asked to compare tire tracks, pollen fibers, DNA, or shell casings. Finally, you will submit your report and conclusions at the end of your investigation and learn whether you have correctly solved the case.

9. Which kind of analyzing and testing I could do?

Investigation: A House Collided
“A House Collided” investigators will compare fingerprints of the victim to the evidence, examine blood spatter patterns, observe the shoes of the victim and tracks found in the room, compare fibers on the victim’s clothes with fibers in the room, analyze the victim’s blood-alcohol level, compare DNA of the victim with evidence and eventually discover the cause of death.

Investigation: Who Got Served?
For “Who Got Served?” the investigation will include reviewing evidence within a cell phone, examining the contents of the handbag, inspecting the purse and headshot for fingerprints, establishing the time of death, reviewing DNA samples, testing powder from the handbag at the scene, and discovering the cause of death.

Investigation: No Bones About It!
Sleuths working on “No Bones About It!” will analyze the bullet from the found skull, analyze hairs found with the body, examine a seed found in a the pocket of a coat, study a DNA sample from a tooth, test the DNA of an animal’s hair, examine a femur bone to establish the height of the victim, compare dental records to the victim and discover the cause of death.

12. Is there an audio tour?

CSI: The Experience is unlike most typical museum tours. The multimedia is an integral part of the exhibit and will be used by each participant as they proceed through the learning environment. You will access the media at each station, rather than carry a guided museum audio commentary with you.
