The Royal Canadian Mounted Police (RCMP) have been an integral part of Canada's historical and cultural landscape since 1873, helping to form and protect our great nation, and playing a significant role in creating the Canadian identity. Situated on the doorstep of RCMP Academy, "Depot" Division in Regina, Saskatchewan, where Mounties have trained since 1885, the RCMP Heritage Centre is appropriately located where the tradition begins. The Centre brings to life the incredible story of the RCMP and its role in the development of Canada using state of the art exhibits, multimedia technologies, and engaging programming and tours.

Find out more about the RCMP and how they are trained and what they do all over Canada. It is a very interesting museum and be sure and watch the 20 minute film about the training of the Mounties right here in Regina. Very impressive.

A last minute decision to visit here and was pleasantly surprised to discover such important history central to Canada's society and how the traditions live on. The cadets put on a marching parade soon after I arrived (around midday) which a bonus to see at no additional cost.

A great place to tour: attractions for the whole family, including a small theatre, various exhibits, an interactive section, games and activities for kids, and a nicely stocked gift shop. Have your photo taken in any of several historical Mounted Police uniforms, or relax with coffee, tea, and dainties in a lounge area. This is a very worthwhile attraction; make... More

I had the pleasure of visiting the Heritage Centre while in Regina on business. My Dad was in law enforcement so the Centre had a special meaning to me.

Took a high school senior US government class from Montana to gain perspective into the workings of law enforcement in Canada. Students enjoyed the cadet parade and scavenger hunt in the museum. Overall this was a wonderful learning experience for students and adults. Definitely will leave a lasting impression. Looking forward to visiting again. Thank you to the friendly staff!
