This little gem is hidden off exit 1 on I95. The displays are interesting and have a lot of historical information. The displays of equipment are sparkling. Particularly enjoyed the wall of patches.

What a neat place to view the NJSP from the very beginning of their existence! We enjoy browsing from display to display and stopping at the gift shop to purchase a gift for ourselves or our little ones A great museum representing a great organization!

I've been here a few times with students. We've had great experiences all the times we've gone. The officers who work at the museum are more than accommodating. Definitely not an all day field trip but an hour or so at the museum is perfect....More

A small museum that gives the history of the NJ state police. Is an easy drive and a museum you can get through in an hour or so. Great if your kids are boys.

The highlight of the museum is the Lindbergh case, a must see for anyone interested in this part of NJ history.
