If you've ever wanted to see and feel the history of the RCMP this is the place to start from. Located next door to the RCMP Depot Division, the training site for all RCMP members in Canada, you'll find all the answers to questions about their history and current duties. There's displays, video presentations, interactive exhibits, and even guided tours... More

Thank you so much for taking the time to write a review about your visit to the RCMP Heritage Centre.

We wil definately be offers these tours again during the summer season next year.... More

The museum is interesting but is not a world class museum that the Royal Canadian Mounted Police should have! Does give you an idea of challenges and struggles in the old days

The new facility (at least to me) is well worth a visit - the short video to start is quite emotional and helps set the stage for the entire visit. There are interactive displays and lots of history - especially interesting was the crime scene display. The tribute to missing aboriginal women was also very well done.

The Heritage Centre has 6 galleries showing the history of the RCMP from its founding, through the March West, to its Northern role and now its international scope. The galleries and the films in the main theatre are a great reminder as to how big a country this is and how many different challenges a Mountie has to be ready... More

Our family enjoyed looking around this museum, where we spent around an hour. Admission is free. The largest single item is a carriage used by Queen Elizabeth II and her husband, although there are a number of smaller items in display cases. The displays cover the history of the mounted police and the scope of their work in fighting crime,... More

Thank you for your review. After reading your review I believe that you have mistakenly written a review for the Musical Ride Centre in Ottawa. The RCMP Heritage Centre does not have as part of our collection the Carriage used by Queen Elizabth II nor do we have any horses. Thank you More

You can spend lots of time walking through their displays, take a motorized tram tour around the complex and watch a video all for $10 per adult. Nice gift shop and most staff is very helpful.
