Owner description: 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.

Every visit to RCMP depot in Regina is a learning experience. Fantastic way to learn about Canada's National Police Force!

“Worthwhile”
Reviewed April 1, 2013

Glad I made the effort to go here. Make sure you hang around for one of the free tours of the barracks as well - some lovely old buildings. It made for a very pleasant and unhurried afternoon activity.
Impressed by the interactive displays for kids.
On our holiday we also visited other Fort historical sites and this was far, far better.

“Canadian Heritage - worth the stop”
Reviewed March 19, 2013

I have been to the RCMP Heritage Centre a couple times but this last visit I actually got to see the most! The other visits were an RCMP grad, a reception and another time with my kids.

I had company from Victoria, Abbotsford and Norway and decided this was a great Regina site to show off. It was especially meaningful as we had a cousin/niece graduate from Depot a few years ago. We were able to see the video about Depot, browse the exhibits and even had a little fun dressing up in the red serge 'dress up' area. The crime scene section is quite interesting and there is always a revolving exhibit section, that gets changed up every so often.

If you live in the area or if you are visiting, this is definitely worth checking out.

“Worth while if in Regina”
Reviewed March 2, 2013 via mobile

Good way to learn more about the history behind the RCMP. We began our visit with a film about Depot, the main training grounds for RCMP hopefuls. The main exhibit outlines the history of the all the law enforcement groups that the eventually made up the RCMP. The highlight for us was the special exhibit 'Arresting Images', with its mug shots from the late 1800s to the early 1900s. Fascinating that people were arrested for looking suspicious!
