Wow! Absolutely phenomenal! My favorite museum, definitely right up my alley. Really cool bone casts, weapons, an insight into handwriting analysis, fingerprinting, and is the location of what was the coroner's office/morgue. The morgue was fascinating!
This museum is awesome for anyone who likes crime related stuff. They showcase everything from historical artifacts to confiscated weapons, drug paraphernalia, etc. They also have a room dedicated to unsolved crimes and they have a mourge and an autopsy room. The building itself was the original coroner's office it is quite the exhibit. I would highly recommend this venue to anyone.
Was under construction when we visited. Still very interesting. Receptionist welcoming. Loo available.
Fascinating stuff. Children had a great time doing a scavenger hunt, learning about local history, exploring case files, discovering a bullet hole in a glass window, and so much more. Only had the last 90 minutes of their day, but enjoyed our short visit very much.
Great idea, in the perfect place for it. The morgue are is terrific: perfect for teenagers. Unfortunately the staff was not very aware when we visited. Obviously the museum should be available in French also.
