  • This has been one of the coolest museums I have been in. Even though I'm from San Diego and have been in old town a lot, I never went into this museum. It is very cool and interesting
  • My wife and I are looking forward to visiting the Sheriff's Museum today. The reason is that all I know about Sheriff's office and their duties is very little. Another reason for going is that my Uncle was Sheriff Ed Cunningham of Lake County, Ohio for 28 years and raised his family including two children over the County Jail so I am sure to find more interesting knowledge about this museum. Jim Enjoyed and stayed in the museum for over an hour. Found they were very helpful in pointing out interesting exhibits to us and how to be entertained by them. Very educational don't miss it. Jim
  • Excellent little museum. Very interesting. Staff was friendly and helpful.
  • Very cool. And free to boot!
  • We stumbled upon this by accident while visiting old town...my13 year old son absolutely loved it. We are planning a return visit soon...really interesting.
