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.


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.

Event Rentals

Looking for a unique site to host our birthday party, book launch or corporate event? Our heritage spaces are a great backdrop to any occasion.

Our Coroner's Courtroom spaces can host up to 80 guests (reception style) and 50 guests seated. We have a projector and screen available, seating for 50 and a podium for speaker events. Food and drink are not permitted in the Coroner's Courtroom but can be set up in the Morgue space. 

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.
