The Crime & Punishment Museum is probably the most interesting museum in DC that very few people know about. It begins in the 16th century and traces the history of crime and its consequences to present day. The punishments are so bizarre for the simplest deed and everyone seeme to get a stint in the town stocks. This was my second visit to the museum, but I brought my brother and his wife who were visiting from Massachusetts. They studied and read every word in that museum for five hours.We saw the lavish cell of Al Capone; read the poetry written by Bonnie Barrow; tried out a prison cell; participated in a forensic lab; and tried the simulated car chase and shoot out that is used in FBI and the police academy. They definitely need chairs there. We slowly made our way through all the exhibits, one more intriguing than the next.I don't want to say too much because there are surprises, but if you're in DC, be sure to see it.
