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!!

This was free to have a look round. There wasn't anyone else there when we went. Some of the exhibits had fallen over and blocked the descriptions. There are some interesting cases displayed. Very good exhibition overall. The shop in the foyer had very friendly staff.

Free activity (donation suggested). This museum was probably designed in the 1980s or beginning of the 1990s and it seems that it hasn't really been updated since. Little boys will enjoy seeing the police car and motorcycle. It's a fun activity to do if you have kids and happen to be in the area. Having known, we wouldn't have gone out of our way to go there though, it’s not really worth it.

The museum has a lot of information panels to read about the history of policing in Toronto. Some of the history is about the various police chief (maybe commissioners) through the years. Some is about the various smaller police departments that were eventually merged to make the current police force. There are exhibits of uniforms and equipment used during different eras. There are several exhibits related to specific crimes that include a piece of evidence or an object related to the crime. There are a couple of exhibits that need some maintenance; objects have fallen, making the information difficult to read. Admission is free, or a donation if you wish. The gift shop has a lot of branded souvenirs like T-shirts, pens, etc.
