As previously reported by Las Vegas Backstage Access on July 27, a CSI exhibit was being planned for Las Vegas, Crime Scene Tourism Sprouts in Las Vegas Now it’s a reality.
If you didn’t get enough of “CSI: Crime Scene Investigation” on TV, now, hopefully, you can get your fill by trying you brain and hands at “CSI: The Experience,” a brand-new attraction to the only city where a “CSI” exhibit truly makes sense, Las Vegas.
The new interactive multimedia playground opened at the MGM Grand today, a project that took EMS Exhibits only six months and $5 million to create the 12,000-square-foot exhibit.
Budding forensic specialists can try their skill in solving one of three crimes. Each crime takes from 60 to 90 minutes to solve. Upon completion of each, visitors receive a CSI diploma.
It’s also the sort of activity that’s good for corporate team-building, because it encourages communication, says Doris Pommerening, spokeswoman for EMS Exhibits Inc. The exhibit can accommodate a group size of 45 people.
The exhibit is open daily from 10 a.m. to 10 p.m. Admission costs $30 and successive visits cost $26 each until all three crimes are completed.

Crime Scene Tourism is on its way to the MGM Grand in Las Vegas.
The upcoming attraction, “CSI: The Experience,” is based on the popular CSI television series and is licensed by CBS Products, which also licensed the now defunct “Star Trek: The Experience” exhibit at the Las Vegas Hilton.
Not only are the myriad CSI series among the most popular programs on television, the original version of the show is set in Las Vegas. It was also created, written and co-produced by Las Vegan Anthony Zuiker.
The exhibit is expected to open this summer, with tickets priced at $30.
