“Take a step back in time”

Take a step back in time on a tour through the Indiana State Police Museum. You can travel into our past taking a look at various uniforms, cars and equipment used by the Indiana State Police over the years. The Museum, dedicated in 1993, was built on unused acreage adjacent to the Indianapolis Post. Funding for construction and furnishings for the Museum was made possible through private donations. A committee of department employees and community leaders oversaw the construction phase. Upon completion, more volunteers were called on to spend numerous hours completing the interior and displays. Additionally, employees and friends of the Indiana State Police donated memorabilia to enhance the exhibits. During a tour, visitors can see displays of donated and confiscated items from the John Dillinger era, as well as a moonshine still, a variety of Indiana State Police vehicles, and numerous antique equipment relating to law enforcement. The Museum also serves as the administrative offices of the Indiana State Police Youth Services. Since 1970, the Indiana State Police has sponsored camps for middle and high school students interested in law enforcement.
