Vancouver Police Museum, Vancouver Reviews
me & my partner got a free tour (i don't remember how..) & enjoyed each room.. being a true crime fan, i found it very interesting, & learned a lot of local history.. the backrooms, the morgue, the gang exhibit, & all of the drug paraphernalia they've confiscated throughout the ages were my favorite parts.. would definitely go again if it wasn't so expensive..
Small space, could be quick to get through for some, but it's PACKED with really cool artifacts! (The whitespot MILKSHAKE!!!) entry price affordable, and friendly staff. Amazing overall if you also love ogling stuff ~ definitely worth a stop if you're a true crime buff. - SSDGM
It was alright. It's in a historic building and there are a couple interesting and chilling exhibits but the experience won't blow you away or have you coming home with a phone full of beautiful or memorable photos.
VERY interesting and detailed. The fact that this museum was the old Coroner's Office, made it a little creepy for me. Not at all a complaint. The realism of this self - conducted tour is quite amazing for the size that it is. They have put a lot of information intro a relatively small space. Interactive centres and pop up presentations. Am enjoyable museum experience. They're open from 9am to 6pm Mon. To Fri. If you're walking around by Main and Burrard, stop in.
A very unique and interesting museum. Although a notably small operation of dedicated staff, the quality of artifacts and knowledge is not lost amongst the clutter and scale. There is a lot of cool things to see from pictures to drugs to weapons (both police and criminal variety), and if you are interested on those merits you won't be disappointed although it will be a short stay. However going beyond the surface level you will find a lot of rich local history, a vast wealth of education on police and coroner procedure, and some interesting tidbits about Vancouver and the men and women that made up it's police and coroner's service. On that note it was quite the surprise to see how much was there on coroner's and autopsies, and I wish there was a way to make that more evident to those curious about the museum.
