Have you ever wondered what law enforcement was like one or even two hundred years ago?

The uniforms peace officers wore, the equipment they used, what they were paid, or how they became police officers? If these questions remain unanswered for you, then you must visit the Police Heritage Museum!

The Police Heritage Museum, Inc. is a non-profit organization incorporated and dedicated to the preservation of police artifacts and the history of law enforcement.

Financial support of the museum is through individual and corporate donations, admission charges, gift shop sales, and events sponsored by the museum. The Police Heritage Museum receives no direct financial support from any law enforcement agencies.

Our mission is:

    To acquire, develop and maintain a facility for a public police museum that provides a historical learning experience;

    Foster the preservation of artifacts, historic records of police officers, their departments, and the techniques and equipment they used to combat crime and preserve the peace and order in their communities;

    Provide a visual history of the development and changes in American law enforcement;

    Promote a better understanding between law enforcement and the citizens they serve by demonstrating the role police officers play in their communities' history and growth.

The museum is entertaining and educational for the whole family. You will see, experience and learn about police equipment and the history of law enforcement, crime and punishment.

Saturdays from 9 AM to 4 PM from the beginning of April until the end of October.
