Parking & Directions


    We do not have a designated parking lot for the museum. There is ample metered parking as well as public pay parking nearby.



    The museum is located on Cordova Street, one block north of the intersection of Main Street and Hastings Street. There is extensive metered parking in the blocks surrounding the museum, costing $1 per hour. Cordova Street is a one-way, eastbound street.


    The #4 Powell and the #7 Nanaimo bus routes operate from Granville Street or Waterfront Skytrain Stations and both stop half a block from the museum. Numerous additional bus routes travel along nearby Main Street and Hastings Street. Visit Translink‘s website or call 604-953-3333 for additional route, fare and schedule information.


    Patrons are encouraged to walk to the museum through historic Chinatown, just ten minutes away, travelling east on Pender Street to Gore Street, and two blocks north to Cordova Street. Visitors in Gastown can take a seven minute walk east from Gassy Jack’s statue along Powell Street to Gore Street, then one block South to Cordova Street. Hastings Street is not a preferred walking route.

    Hop-on/hop-off Trolley

    The Vancouver Police Museum is a stop (#11 – Blue Route) on the Vancouver Trolley Company’s Hop-on/Hop-off Trolley route. More information about this tour can be found here. In summer pick-up and drop-off at the museum stop is every twenty minutes.
