CSI Logo Crack the Case at OMSI
Imagine entering a crime scene and being the one responsible for noticing and collecting every trace of evidence. The pressure is on: you know the analysis of your evidence must be scientifically sound to crack the case.

CSI Car Scene Exhibit at OMSI You’ve seen the hit television crime drama, CSI: Crime Scene Investigation on CBS. Now, you can experience a hands-on forensic science exhibit related to the TV show at the Oregon Museum of Science and Industry (OMSI) called CSI: The Experience. CSI: The Experience is on exhibit at OMSI until Sept. 13 and is recommended for adults and youth 12 and up.

The exhibit invites visitors to enter and observe one of three crime scenes where they identify and record evidence. From DNA and firearms analysis to forensic anthropology and toxicology, visitors will be immersed in hands-on science in an exciting multi-media environment with dazzling special effects direct from the CSI TV series.

Comcast recognizes the value shows such as CSI have as both entertainment and as a gateway to science discovery and has been a proud supporter of OMSI and its programs since 1987.
