If you are one of those people who talks to the TV set while “CSI” is on to tell Gil Grissom you’ve solved the murder, there’s an exhibit you might want to see in Manhattan. Tomorrow, the Times Square Discovery Center will open a show around the long-running show that will test your skills at solving cases, just like its investigators. Visitors to CSI: The Experience will be given a scenario involving one of three murders and they can then tour the lab set-up to unravel the clues.
CSI: The Experience is in the same pop-up exhibit space that housed the Harry Potter and Leonardo Da Vinci exhibits that we’ve told you about before. Since this show is all about murder, however, it may not be the best choice for a family outing. The organizers are suggesting CSI is best suited for children age 12 and up, although one scenario, “No Bones About It”, could work for a younger crowd.
Tickets range from $19.50 for children to $25 for adults, and if traffic to this show is anything like the others we’ve been to, you’d be well advised to buy yours online before you head into Manhattan.
