"CSI: The Experience"

You don't have to sing "Whooo are you? Who? Who? Who? Who?" in order to enjoy "CSI: The Experience," but it wouldn't hurt. The interactive exhibit inspired by the popular CBS series puts attendees into one of three mock crime scenes, letting them figure out what the evidence is saying.

After scoping the site for clues, you'll head into the realistic labs, where the cast of the original CSI and some real criminal scientists on video screens will lead you through DNA testing, finger- and shoe-print matching, autopsies and more. (Employees of HPD's crime lab might want to use this as a chance for extra practice.)

Jot down all your findings and report to Gil Grissom - once again, on a video screen - to find out who, who, who, who the evidence is pointing to. 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. Mondays and Wednesdays through Saturdays, 9 a.m. to 8 p.m. Tuesdays, and 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. Sundays. Through April 30. Houston Museum of Natural Science, One Hermann Circle Drive. For tickets and information, call 713-639-4629 or visit www.hmns.org. $9 to $15.
Feb. 1-April 30, 2008
