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.

This museum is free to the public. Great collection of Alaska State Troopers' memorabilia. If you have any enforcement experience, you will love this place. If you do not, this museum is a history lesson in the officers who brought law and order to Alaska.

Very quaint museum, on the small side, but for free we would recommend going. A great history of the Alaska State Troopers is told through artifacts. The museum is curated by a friendly woman who is passionate about law enforcement. Our kids loved safety bear!
