Rent the Police Museum!

The Vancouver Police Museum & Archives is one of the city's most historic sites, making it a fascinating location to film or host events, meetings, parties and seminars.

Designed by Arthur J. Bird, the structure dates back to 1932 and retains much of its original style and foundations, which are a blend of classic Georgian Revival and Art Deco styles.

The heritage building formerly housed Vancouver's Coroner's Services and the City Analyst's Laboratory, lending a dramatic element of history to its environment. Two of its most popular rooms and attractions, unsurprisingly, are the morgue and autopsy suite—both of which have hosted an exciting array of events, including Halloween parties, live theatre and book launches.

Other rooms in the building feature a wide range of captivating exhibits and attractions to entertain guests, while the spaces themselves are intimate and full of character.

Filming Location Rentals

The museum has also played host to a number of famous TV shows and movies, including The X-Files, The Man in the High Castle, The Romeo Section and Da Vinci's Inquest.

Those looking for authentic​ ​period​ ​spaces​ and an intact​ ​autopsy​ ​suite and morgue will find the Vancouver Police Museum fitting as the perfect venue​.
