If you love anything CSI like I do then this place is for you!! My kids are 14 and 17 and we all love it. So much to see and learn! It took us almost 3 hours to see everything from beginning to end. Great...More

I think a young child would be very bored. It's mostly history of crime. There is a section on serial killers that is more current. But most everything else is historical in nature. And like many others have said there are of course a lot of violent images of murder and crime scenes.
