Not an overly large display, however, one gets a great sense of how far Toronto Police have come since their humble beginnings. This was a play I heard about and wanted to visit. I'm so glad I did. It makes one appreciate our cops today and the importance of technology on keeping the community and our officers safe. Check for... More

This is an interesting spot but the key word is brief. If coupled with a shoppinng trip it is an interesting spot to see how Canadian policing evolved, but not as a visit on its own. Stop by the souvenier shop.

If your interested in getting alittle history of where and how the Toronto police got started, there alot of great information. The museum is not the big itself, but it's packed with everything you can imagine when you think Toronto police. Take a look and enjoy!

Very small museum, so isn't much opportunity for the kids to get bored. We stopped in while passing by one day and it was a cool way to fill in a little more of the day.

The price is right! At this museum the entrance fee is a voluntary donation with no set amount. The museum is interesting but kind of small I wouldn’t make a special trip just to go there but if you are in the area it is worth a look.

Snuggled in a part of the Toronto Metropolitan Police Headquarters building, this little quiet museum is not at all busy, partly i guess is that it is not very high-profile. Police HQ is located near College subway. This little museum has Toronto police related exhibits such as uniforms, insignias, badges, handcuffs, etc from the early days to the latest. There... More
