Firstly, this museum is free. It is also has merchandise to buy should you feel like taking a memento home. The place has many cool exhibits including one on the famous Miranda case. If you're in the area, stop on by and say hello.

Few people know about this great little museum. Even the 3000 people that work in the court system across the street barely know about this place. It has a rich history, including The birthplace of our Maranda right. After Maranda was arrested, he was taken...More
