The insight that you will gain from a tour this museum is astounding. The stuff from Miranda case alone will blow your mind. Some of the people giving the tour knew Miranda. One even arrested him. Very cool place.

Very interesting exhibit. I would highly recommend it to visitors or residents. Not an extensive collection but was educational for all of us and any questions we asked, were answered by staff.

Not very big, but lots of information. This is where the Miranda warning started. Reviews saying yiou can sit in his chair are not correct. Free and centrally located. Definitely worth the time.
