Recommended Posts

Guest Lisa Marie Ordakowski

Summer in the D.C. Metropolitan area brings hundreds of thousands of tourist into our crowded streets, all in town to see the various offerings of our Nation’s Capital. But this summer, the National Museum of Crime & Punishment (NMCP) wants to thank those who call D.C. home by offering the “6 After 6” locals-only discount to residents of DC, MD, and VA. Starting June 5th, all local residents with proper ID will receive $6 admission to the museum after 6:00 PM, seven days a week.



"While we are thrilled that people from around the globe come to visit Washington during the summer, we also understand that local residents can sometimes get frustrated with the increased traffic. This locals-only discount is a way for us to say thank you to the residents who have been visiting us year-round,” said Janine Vaccarello, Chief Operating Officer of the National Museum of Crime & Punishment.


The discounted admission price offers guests access to interact with a realistic forensics lab, create ID cards and fingerprinting, and use a lie detector test. Visitors to the museum will also experience first-hand the skills necessary to fight crime through such interactive components as a simulated FBI shooting range and high-speed police chase simulators. Artifacts include J. Edgar Hoover’s badge and boxing gloves given to him by James Braddock (“Cinderella Man),” John Dillinger’s car, the 1967 Hollywood film “Death Car” of Bonnie and Clyde, and the collections of Poncho Villa and Jesse James.



The museum is located at 575 7th Street NW between E and F Streets in downtown Washington, D.C. at the Gallery Place/Chinatown Metro (Arena exit) and online at www.crimemuseum.org. For ticket and facility rental information, call (202) 393-1099.
