About The MSPMLC
The Massachusetts State Police Museum and Learning Center provides an opportunity for visitors to explore the Massachusetts State Police’s rich historical past through its interactive exhibits and Learning Center activities. Many past and present Troopers, local police officers, and dedicated citizens have invested thousands of volunteer hours towards preserving the unique history of those who have worn the French and Electric Blue, from its humble beginnings as the State Constabulary enforcing prohibition and labor laws in 1865 up through the modern era of cybercrime, homeland security, and the challenges of policing in this era.
The Massachusetts State Police takes pride in their heritage and wishes to preserve their history for future members of the Department as well as for the public. The MSPMLC provides an opportunity for visitors to explore the agency’s past as well as learning about current law enforcement methods and public safety efforts. Over the years, many State Police related items and historic memorabilia have been recovered and restored. Some of these items are currently on display in the Museum, with much more in storage awaiting permanent display.
