A small museum that accepts donations. Sgt Dan car outside, which the kids found funny. The initial part is a wall of the fallen, honoring State Troopers who died in the line of duty.

Depicts the history of the Delaware State Police. Also, shows some of the old equipment, including police cars. You're allowed to take pictures in the driver's seat so come prepared.

Takes about 30-45 minutes to go through it but is a fun walk through the past. My nephews were running around enjoying it immensely.
