It sounds both fascinating and macabre, but I think I'm too squeamish to add it to my own agenda when I'm next in Washington!
The new National Museum of Crime and Punishment—opening May 22 in Washington, D.C.—will focus on that national fascination with exhibits that chronicle both our history of bad behaviors and our sometimes cruel and ingenious ways of reproving them.
. . . .
In addition to a variety of interactive exhibits on activities such as safecracking and crime scene photography, the museum also tries to explore the legal consequences of crime and punishment by devoting part of its exhibition space to constitutional rights and notable U.S. Supreme Court rulings, including Miranda v. Arizona, 384 U.S. 436 (1966).
