What a neat place to view the NJSP from the very beginning of their existence! We enjoy browsing from display to display and stopping at the gift shop to purchase a gift for ourselves or our little ones A great museum representing a great organization!

I've been here a few times with students. We've had great experiences all the times we've gone. The officers who work at the museum are more than accommodating. Definitely not an all day field trip but an hour or so at the museum is perfect. Great little gift shop too!

We drove 1 1/2 hours to visit this museum because my son loves police officers. The museum is one room, none of the interactive items or videos worked except the crime scene investigation video. They do have an interesting display on the Lindbergh Baby Kidnapping, but of course it is very biased (and they have a couple of the 15... More
