'Securing the Homeland – ICE' exhibit opens at Crime Museum in DC
WASHINGTON — The Crime Museum today unveiled a new exhibit entitled "Securing the Homeland – ICE," offering insight into U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) and its efforts to promote homeland security and public safety through the enforcement of more than 400 federal laws governing homeland security, customs, trade and immigration.

The exhibit educates the public on the role and work of ICE. Museum guests will have the opportunity to read about some high profile ICE cases, learn about the impact of counterfeit goods on U.S. security, understand how ICE protects our homeland and test their knowledge of ICE at the Crime Museum.
"This exhibit provides ICE with a new venue to showcase how the dedicated men and women of this agency work to keep our nation and its people safe every day," said ICE Deputy Director Daniel Ragsdale. "As we protect America from the cross-border crime and unlawful migration that threatens public safety, we hope to inspire people to join our team and help us keep our nation safe."

A variety of items that ICE has confiscated are among the artifacts in the exhibit, along with uniforms and part of the agency's history. Some highlighted objects include:

Reproductions of the 9/11 hijackers' passports and other 9/11 artifacts

Drug smuggling paraphernalia and drug tunnel digging tools
Seized counterfeit goods including fake Super Bowl tickets and merchandise

A stuffed bear and a highway road sign that helped special agents solve cases and rescue endangered children

"Our mission at the Crime Museum is to educate, utilizing interactive and entertaining experiences," said Janine Vaccarello, chief operating officer of the Crime Museum. "We are pleased to team with ICE to present this informative exhibit that underscores the role the organization plays in public safety on a daily basis."

"Securing the Homeland – ICE" at the Crime Museum is scheduled to run through summer. The museum is located at 575 7th Street, NW (between E and F Streets) in downtown Washington, D.C., less than a block from the Gallery Place Metro Station.

Regular business hours are Sunday through Thursday, 10 a.m. to 7 p.m. and Friday through Saturday, 10 a.m. to 8 p.m. Call (202) 621-5550 or (202) 870-2343 to verify daily hours, or visit www.crimemuseum.org.

I went here on a school field trip last year and my experience was awesome! First, we toured the "Crime Throughout the Ages" exhibit and it was very well put together. Next, we went to the section with the police simulation. My only problem was that your character died every time. The last thing we did was solve a whodunit mystery involving learning about forensics the whole time. As for lunch, one of the teachers ordered Chipotle catering and the other option was McDonald's. The only issue with the whole experience was that a student had to go to the hospital and one of the the teachers (we had two with us) went with her.

It was just okay. I was disappointed that many of the artifacts were only replicas, movie props or illustrative. The real things are few and far between. The crime lab is uninteresting and they could put o better use the space devoted to counterfeit name brands. If you are nearby and have $33 to blow, it's okay, but there are better options try the International Spy Museum!

I love this place. I went with my thirteen year old brother and he loved it which made me proud and thankful. it has everything one would expect from a crime museum, however I just want to point out my favorite aspect which I feel like is overlooked. I love that the decor mkes you feel like like you are in a prison. At least thats what I felt. The museum is full of blank black bars and rails, with yellow lines in specific areas and that just got me engulfed in a criminal atmosphere which is just awesome. Will definitely come her again, as we weren't able to see everything. My only complaint is that I feel it is a bit pricey.

I went with my mother recently, and was pretty unremarkable except for one thing: there were innumerable errors in the museum's information placards. I started counting, but lost track after 15 errors in the first set of exhibits. Grammar mistakes, punctuation errors, misspellings, and even several verbatim paragraphs printed one on top of the other. It was very distracting, and left the overall impression that the person(s) responsible for curating the museum were not very on top of their game. This in the face of a minimum charge of nearly $22 for adult admission made this a real disappointment. We left halfway through and didn't come back.

The museum itself was amazing. So much information and a lot of fun. The classes/labs that were offered were not that great. They were very rushed and geared toward younger kids. Even the body decomposition was geared toward the younger kids.

Great experience. Rip off pricing. I took my wife there for their Valentine's day event. The museum itself was very educational and had far more information than expected. Pros: Very well put together. Great place for families to learn about criminals and the prison system. Even covers some medieval era. Cons: No drinks. I dont mean adult drinks. There was not a water fountain, soda machine or bar on premise. Plan accordingly. Long walk. You will feel like you found a new kind of ikea. No end in site. By the time we got to the csi section we were thirsty and ready to leave. The Valentine's day event is a scam. For $160 we got the everyday show plus a couple extra signs and fuzzy hand cuffs. The melting pot is cheaper and we get adult beverages. We will go again when our son is older but its at the bottom of the list compared with all the free sites.
