Welcome! The Rhode Island State Police Museum was founded in 2006 to share the history of the Rhode Island State Police and preserve its artifacts, documents and photographs for future generations to research and enjoy. The museum is a 501c(3) non-profit organization and is funded entirely through private donations, fundraising and sales of merchandise.

We hope you have the opportunity to visit the museum through an organized tour or during one of our upcoming events.
Thank you for your interest and your support!

The Rhode Island State Police Museum Foundation, Inc. is a non-profit 501(c)(3) organization.  The museum and its artifacts exist through the support of numerous individuals and organizations.  No state funds are utilized to create, construct or maintain the museum.


We are always looking to expand and enhance the numerous displays contained inside.  These efforts, along with general operating costs and maintenance, require constant fundraising efforts to ensure that the museum continues to educate and inspire those with an interest in the Rhode Island State Police.
