Murder House Party!

Murder House Party!

The exhibit explores Frances Glessner Lee’s detailed miniature crime scenes to train homicide investigators to convict the guilty, clear the innocent and find the truth. These dollhouse-sized diorama composites of true crime scenes were the equivalent of virtual reality in their time, and helped to revolutionize the emerging field of forensic science. Constructed in the 1940s and '50s, they are still used to train homicide investigators today. Here, Kassie Koll with artist Minda Merinsky and Stephanie Brumfield.
