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.

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.
