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 ransom notes). In a separate room they have a 1991 police car that the kids can climb into and work the lights. They have a motorcycle and an old police car that is off the line from the '30s (they didn't have lights and sirens back then, apparently!). This visit is only worth it if they are having their open house, which will be May 8, 2010. then they will have their K-9 unit, a helicopter landing, etc. Also, the trooper who is the museum overseer in the info booth said that soon they will be re-vamping the museum.
