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.

the reason I went was to see the old police cars. it was worth the drive itself. There was lots to choose from in the gift shop something for everybody whether your a hat type of person or shirts or just little things. I here maybe 2 years ago so ignore the date of visit

Today we were visiting Orillia and had some extra time so we thought we would pop by. We were... More

We start in the museum by ourselves. There was no guide or staff to assist. Maybe it was the day we went (midweek). We didn't realize until we were half way thought that you could pull out drawers to see more information. The kids were a little bored but the did like the dress up area.

Took my grandson for a visit and was disappointed. There are a few old police cruisers to see plus whatever use to be in some police vaults. There should be more inter active displays for the younger visitors.

Since I am into museums and history, this is why I rated this very high. Located on the ground floor the OPP GHQ building, this small and free l musem does justice to the history of this provincial police service. There are stand up displays plus hands on demonstrations. They have a curator along with a small staff to devote... More

My daughter had fun here. just a time filler. nothing spectacular though. If you need to blow 30 minutes to an hour and you have an interest in the OPP, then you might like it.
