Connecticut State Police Museum

Through displays, photos, and videos, the Connecticut State Police Museum displays the rich history of the Connecticut State Police Department.

Trace the department’s history from its inception in 1903 with only a handful of troopers, to today’s modern department staffed with more than 1,400 sworn state troopers and dedicated civilian support personnel. Visitors will also learn about the history of law enforcement in Connecticut from its early days through the present.

Admission is free, however we gratefully accept donations. This project was accomplished with donations from our members and friends and no tax dollars were spent in its creation. The tour guides and preservation staff are all volunteers.
