Doesn't take too long to go through the museum, but worth going to see. It's also neat to see the OPP Headquarters where the museum is located. Gift shop is well stocked too.

Kind of stale, needs to be modernized a bit and expanded. The old uniforms are interesting but the place needs a facelift.

The Museum is not very big and can easily be covered in about 30 minutes to one hour. Some very interesting displays for all ages.

If you are in Orillia and have the time. Visit the OPP Museum at 777 Memorial Avenue. It was interesting to learn the history of the OPP. Plus, they have some old cars, a boat, and a few motorcycles on display. It was free and well worth the time.

An outstanding presentation of OPP history and OPP community involvement. Pick up a detailed exhibit booklet upon entering, take a guided tour on your own. Exhibits are creative, some interactive. Children will be well entertained. If your lucky a staff person will be available to answer questions. If by chance you are a former member, bring in that keepsake stuff... More

Be prepared to spend some time there. Lots of history & interesting stories. The staff have a wealth of knowledge & there are many exhibits which they can explain in detail. There's a cafeteria serving breakfast & lunch & also a shop selling memorabilia & clothing, caps etc.

We've been a couple of times to this museum over the past couple of years, once was during a family day activity day - which had lots of other activities going on at the station as well as in the museum. Today we were visiting Orillia and had some extra time so we thought we would pop by. We were... More
