We thoroughly enjoyed visiting this museum. Admission is only five dollars. So glad we stopped in to see all the interesting photos and uniforms and police vehicles etc. Lots of history here. Nice gift shop too. We bought quite a few items for our grandkids....More

The intentions are good but the room was so dark it difficult to read anything. Not worth visiting unless you are desperate to kill time in which case cruise the lovely cemetery behind it instead.
