Vancouver Police Museum, Vancouver Reviews - Write a Review

  • The area this is located in is SUPER sketchy - but the museum was a pleasant surprise. It was smaller but it wasn't to expensive and the exhibits were really interesting. But yeah definitely lock your cars before you leave - the entire area is filled - and I mean filled - with druggies and homeless people. The museum is right by a police station though and there are security cameras and cops all around so you are pretty safe. Even braving the dangers of *gasp* that part of town I would say this museum was a blast. The gift shop is nonexistent though so if you are looking for a police patch or t shirt you'll need to go elsewhere

  • Wow, I was impressed with the displays that they put into this museum. Lot's of historical memorabilia pertaining to the Vancouver Police. Lot's of pictures, artifacts and insignia. There's even an autopsy room and refrigerators for dead bodies. The building used to be the Coroner's Office. Chinatown is only a couple of blocks west of the museum. You can go there and have lunch after visiting the VPD Museum.

  • Amazing, especially their SWAT video and funny visual novel game. I would recommend it to anyone! The gallery is much bigger than it looks when you first walk in. There is a small entrance fee (About $11 as of 2017). It will take 1-2 hours to view / try everything.

  • Lots of very cool displays,the Wet Room is sort of eerie and creepy and rumoured to be haunted

  • Small but very educational. Every time I came, I learnt something new. Staff have put quite some thoughts into it.
