Spent about 1 hour, no admission charge at Police Headquarters. Displays set up relative to history of force and some previous crimes in the city. Worth the visit.

If you have an interest in policing this is a decent wee museum. We were welcomed by two officers that searched our bags, one even gave us a song, he didn’t do requests though. We had a wee wonder around and the various bits and...More

This museum is portrayed to be small but inside it covers a good sized space and is well thought out and interesting in general policing that goes way back. If you have a couple hours, don't pass this one up. They do require advance notice...More

The museum is located inside the downtown police station and is free. They do have a container at the entrance asking for donations to maintain it. The gift shop there is excellent and has many items that kids would like!!

At the heart of Toronto, Downtown is the destination
for cheap eats and fast fashion. Cut through by hip
and trendy Yonge Street, the vibe here is young, with
a strong student influence from the Ryerson University
Campus. As a result, the Downtown area is always in
flux: undergoing the construction of new facilities,
with fresh retail spaces and pop-up cafes. Home to
