Was glad to be able to visit the museum. It is very small but is worth the $2 fee for the self guided tour. It takes about 1/2 hour.

I remember watching an episode of Mystery at the Museum and this museum was mentioned in relation to a lottery scam that the PSP managed to break. The museum is on the grounds of the PSP training academy and it is housed in a small building that sells clothing and items. It is a small museum but if you take... More
