Sins of the City Walking Tours The Vancouver Police Museum

Sins of the City Tours

Take a walk on the West Coast’s wild side with the Vancouver Police Museum’s Sins of the City Tours! With our expert guides, you’ll learn about Vancouver’s legendary history of drugs, discrimination, prohibition, sex and scandal. Step through the narrow alleys of Chinatown and into the derelict dens of the Downtown Eastside to learn about crooked criminals and devious deeds that plagued the city over a century ago. We’ve been Vancouver’s premier choice for historic walking tours for over 10 years, and The Vancouver Police Museum is the only place where you can see archived reports, photos and artefacts straight from the source. Better yet, all tours come with free admission to the museum and its exhibits—including access to one of the city’s oldest morgues!  This year we have four fantastic tours to choose from.
