Visiting During Covid-19

Safety First During COVID-19: Measures at the Vancouver Police Museum

UPDATE: May 8th, 2021

In response to the ongoing province-wide restrictions In British Columbia, the museum will be closed to the public for 3 weeks, starting

Thursday, May 13th with plans to reopen on Thursday, June 3rd, 2021.


Museum visits will be available for private program bookings only, such as our Friends & Family Forensics, Forensics in a Box (pick up & drop off), and Museum Discovery Tours. Bookings must be made through our website or by phone at least 48 hours in advance. 


We are asking visitors to respect the current travel restrictions. If visiting the museum means leaving your health zone, we kindly ask that you postpone your visit until the restrictions are lifted. As we are located in the combined Vancouver Coastal Health & Fraser Health Regions, we can welcome bookings from visitors in these regions. 


We appreciate your patience and cooperation during these challenging times, and we look forward to welcoming the public back soon.


If you have any questions or would like to book a private program, please call us at 604-665-3346 or email

During this time, we can not stress the importance of keeping safety and health a priority.


In light of the circumstances surrounding the COVID-19 Pandemic, the museum will welcome visitors back under our new health and safety regulations. These measures follow the Provincial guidelines for museums and are strictly adhered to by all VPMA staff and volunteers. Before visiting the museum, we ask that you review these measures to make your visit more enjoyable.
