Beginning May 25, you can get a taste of what it’s like to be a crime scene investigator (CSI) at Chicago’s Museum of Science and Industry. The “CSI: Crime Scene Investigator” Experience, which was developed by the Fort Worth Museum of Science and History with support from CBS Consumer Products and CSI: Crime Scene Investigation, lets guests:
- Match shell casings in a firearms lab,
- Hear from a forensic pathologist in a realistic autopsy room, and
- See a victimÃƒÂs blood tested in the toxicology lab.
You can even keep track of findings and results in your own CSI file.
The exhibit teaches visitors about the advances in DNA profiling, and explores the role human judgment plays with the advancement in technology. And to make the exhibit really cool, youÃƒÂll be guided by investigators from the television show, as well astheir real-life counterparts as you formulate a hypothesis, examine scientific evidence and solve the crime.
Be advised, however, that this exhibit is not included in the museum’s general admission and requires a specified entry time. Advance tickets are available at www.msichicago.org/tickets/index.html.
