'CSI: The Experience' exhibit plans tour stop at Mall of America

If you're fan of the CBS detective show "CSI: Crime Scene Investigation" and ever wanted to test out your forensic skills, you'll soon have your chance.

The Pioneer Press says "CSI: The Experience" is coming to the Mall of America in February. The MOA announced the traveling exhibit will be featured on the third floor of the Bloomingdale's department store, which closed in 2012. The floor will now be used as space for traveling exhibits.

The previously-announced "Barbie, the Dreamhouse Experience" exhibit will run adjacent to "CSI: The Experience" in the space.

The "CSI" exhibit was developed by the Fort Worth Museum of Science and History, and Bob Weiss Design Island Associates.

According to the Minneapolis-St. Paul Business Journal, the exhibit poses "an interactive challenge that invites guests to use real science to solve hypothetical crimes." The challenge reportedly implements the use of DNA identification, forensic pathology, toxicology reports, blood splatter analysis and firearm mark identification.

To get a preview, the "CSI: The Experience" website hosts a virtual tour of the exhibit.

The Business Journal says the Science Museum of Minnesota previously hosted the exhibit in 2008.
