What our Visitors say
Be a cop and a robber in the same day! The Vancouver Police Museum is packed with history and some good interactive stations. The collections of confiscated weapons and crime scene evidence is interesting and a bit shocking. A fun visit, even more if you put on the costumes and get locked into the jail cell. Careful though, the current police station is just across the street!Annette 0.- Trip Advisor
We ended up spending almost two hours here. It’s situated in the city’s old morgue, which adds a cool element. It’s very informative, interesting, and definitely something to do that’s off the beaten path. Highly recommended!Yoyoyoster-Trip Adviser
It was really well done with lots of great displays. Not only police history, but also old morgue and autopsy room for you CSI fans. Couple of great areas for selfies and/or kid pictures. Lots of great info on famous area crimes, Confiscated weapons, K-9 corps, motorcycle cops, etc. We only had 45 mins of parking otherwise we would have stayed longer!Stuart-Trip Advisor
My wife and son loved it. We came here and spent 2 1/2 hours and enjoyed our visit very much! The staff were really friendly and helpful too. I want to go back and go on the walking tour someday.Ken L.-Trip Advisor
