Tiny museum, $5 adults or $3 for military. Took about 10/15 minutes to see everything. Wouldn’t have been bad if it was free, but definitely not worth the admission. Maybe if it was $2/person.

This is a FREE museum. It's packed full of things, better for adults/older kids. If you are a fan of law enforcement this is a must for you.

Although this museum is small, there are so many things to see here, and I was impressed by the Royal Canadian Mounted Police Display. Very helpful staff as well...would definitely recommend spending a few hours here.

It's small and free. Lots of interesting info on law enforcement in Alaska. Enjoyed looking at the old pictures. It's about a block away from the Anchorage Museum (Another highly recommended ToDo place). So after visiting Anchorage Museum head over to the Law Enforcement museum.

Not a very large place, but shows the history of the Alaska State Troopers. When you think of the size and variety of Alaska, the Troopers definitely have some challenges. Unique historical items for Alaska.

This is a small museum focused on the Alaska State Troopers. Interesting displays and it is free. Convenient in downtown.

Cute little museum! A little small, but has a lot of history packed in. Free admission, and not too crowded, so you can take your time meandering around and checking everything out. Really interesting stuff, worth checking out

A stuffy old place with lots of old, very old memorabilia. We thought we will see something from the this era... its free if you are in the area and like old police badges and type writer, go in. parking is $1.75/hour.

Small free museum. Lots of uniforms, badges, pictures,etc. A restored Hudson Hornet. Short video about the history of the state police. Worth a short amount of time if in the area.
