The Vancouver Police Museum & Archives is an independent museum run by the Vancouver Police Historical Society, a registered charity. The museum’s foundations began in celebration of the Vancouver Police Department’s centennial anniversary in 1986 and have since expanded beyond the blue lens of local law enforcement to include the history of the Coroner’s Court building that houses the museum. 



Walk through the Museum's  halls and learn about some of Vancouver's most exciting criminal cases and unsolved murder mysteries, or find out about the fascinating history of policing in Vancouver. Our exhibits are educational, captivating and include authentic photos, archives and artefacts straight from the source. Don't forget, admission also gives you access to the city's former morgue and autopsy room!
