  • Fall Speaker Series Line-up: A former undercover FBI agent, a global organized crime tracker and a legendary crime-fighting attorney. Tickets for 9/19, 10/17 & 11/13 lectures on sale at box office.
  • Great history! Many graphic photos...not for small kids.
  • Muito bom isso vvhhhh

  • We loved this place, it was interesting and I love that there is a lot of hands on activities. Great job.
  • Did you know there's a steel plate in the judge's bench in the historic courtroom. It was meant for the judge to duck behind should gunfire erupt.
  • Give yourself at least two hours to view all exhibits.
