Sure, you could always do the same old thing this Valentine’s Day and spend the night cuddled up on the couch or wining and dining over candlelight at a fancy restaurant, but why not do something new and different? Instead of all the predictable love-dovey activities, throw your S.O. a curve ball and treat them to the Crime Museum’s special “Crimes of Passion” exhibition. Special exhibit boards will be placed throughout the museum detailing various crime of passion (including the Valentine’s Vampire), many of which took place in the D.C. area. And included with admission ($45 per couple) is a souvenir pair of handcuffs so you can continue the V-Day celebration long after your time at the museum is over.
