We loved this place. Our children were quiet until we got to the gift shop. They had lots of things to do and staff was very friendly.

Free. Donation only. Lots of history. Great idea to have play area for the younger children. Not too big. Lots of info from K9 to aircraft patrol. Easy access. Free parking. OPP off duty shop is there too. Youcould be there thirty minutes or couple of hours as it is a self guided tour.

Gee whiz, I think my title says it all! I was excited to see this museum...how cool! Well, not cool that you can only go Monday thru Friday during business hours. I was disappointed. I did see a Tim Hortons cup and a donut just outside the entrance to the facility though....

Took a 5 year old and a 2 year old not sure if they'd enjoy it...they didn't want to leave! The three adults didn't either...really fascinating information for us and great interactive fun for the kids. Highly recommend ✋🏻

So much to see and makes you grateful to have police protection when we need it. Great place to take kids that want to grow up to be a cop.
