Lots of uniforms and patches, the old restored patrol car was wonderful. Lots of souvenirs to buy. I picked a couple of colourful ones for my son at home, and was very thrilled to see a couple of patches from NSWPF in their display.

We spent about a half of an hour here. The weapons display was interesting. If it were larger, I'd have given 5 stars.

This is a free museum with lots of law enforcement artifacts and knowledgeable staff. There is a restored Hudson Hornet police cruiser and stuff to purchase. It's a small museum that is worth your time.

An enormous collection of cop stuff from all over Alaska (and beyond), including a restored Hudson Hornet police cruiser. There a a number of items available to purchase, from jackets to mugs. Admission is free and you can easily spend an hour of so just browsing through all the neat stuff they have on display.

The history of the Alaskan State Troopers was great to learn about. Best FREE Museum I have been to in a long time.

So I can't see how anyone would rate this terrible, only maybe if they were on the receiving end of the troopers. There is such a rich history of Alaska law enforcement and photos that it's truly moving and impressive. It's free and they give children a coloring book, safety light clip and a trooper badge.

It was a small museum but filled with all kinds of interesting info and items. But the best part is the staff. They will take the time to spend with you and answer any questions which makes the experience great!

While traveling in Anchorage I stopped at the Visitors Center and they told me about this museum. I have several friends in law enforcement so I decided to stop in and check it out. It was very interesting and had tons of memorabilia from Alaskan Law Enforcement from a bygone era. There is a great classic Squad Car and all... More
