OMSI: CSI the experience

I love CSI (the original Las Vegas one). Scott & I have seen every episode & love it!

So, when we decided to go to the Oregon Museum of Science & Technology I had to go through the CSI: the experience exhibit. Thankfully my dad & Mike watched the kiddos so I could enjoy it.

It was a blast & so well done. They give you a little slip of paper & while you're at the "crime scene" you make notes, then go through the "lab stations" making notes & the interactive computer screens teach you about the tests they do in CSI labs while you compare finger prints, analyze fibers, looks at DNA all to find out who the killer is.

One of the coolest parts was at the end they had an exhibit of the miniatures used in a series of CSI episodes (some of mine & Scott's favorites). Very neat!

Does anyone else watch CSI? Anyone remember the "miniature killer"?

I love OMSI! It's been over 10 years since I've been but the CSI exhibit would be rockin' cool to see.

I've never loved CSI - the violence is too much for me. Strangely enough I do remember the miniature killer, one of maybe 5 episodes I've seen! I'm glad you got to go to the exhibit sans kiddos - I'm sure that was a nice break!

When Brett and I didnt have cable we would rent the CSI Dvds and have CSI marathons. We loved it too!
