Join us on location for ‘An Arresting Experience!’ The Vancouver Police Museum takes you behind the scenes of Vancouver’s local law enforcement, into a history of Vancouver that you’ve never explored before.

Who Are We?

The Vancouver Police Museum and archives is an independent museum run by the Vancouver Police Historical Society, a registered charity. The museum’s foundations began in celebration of the Vancouver Police Department’s centennial anniversary in 1986 and have since expanded beyond the blue lens of local law enforcement to include the history of the Vancouver Coroner’s Services and the historic City Analyst Laboratory that houses the museum. All admission and donations support museum programming and exhibitions. 

The Experience

Walk through our museum halls and learn about some of Vancouver's most exciting crime cases and unsolved murder mysteries, or delve deep into the fascinating history of policing in Vancouver. In every room, you'll find authentic photos, archives or artefacts straight from the source. And don't forget: our museum gives you access to the city's former morgue and autopsy room both of which feature original artefacts.
