CSI Museum Reaction Paper Visiting the “CSI:The Experience” exhibit at the Discovery Times Square was a learning experience for me. After going to the museum and going through the experience, I realized that going was actually advantageous.

While conducting my investigation I also learned something about blood evidence that I had not previously known. Originally I thought that if blood was found at a crime scene it was just taken and tested for DNA. I thought that all blood was blood and it didn’t matter
