Whether for a day or for an hour a stop at the Ontario Provincial Police museum is pretty much compulsory and worth the time and effort. Lots of displays, several interactive. Free booklets with detailed information. Interesting to all ages. Shop and cafe also available.

When you think of Canada, you think of Royal Canadian Mounted Police, except that Ontario does not have them. They have the OPP or Onatario Provincal Police. Good bunch of lawmen, and worth it to see their history.

Takes a while to see everything but well worth the visit. Replica of Car 1 is quite well done. A visit to the Pathway of Memories out front is also a must see.

Behind the Badge provides great displays showing the history of the OPP. Spent about 1/2 hour looking and reading about the various divisions of the OPP, much of it was new to us. Definitely worth the time to visit and would recommend it to others,...More

Just returned from a trip to the OPP Museum with a group of seniors. We had a wonderful tour with friendly and knowledgeable guides(volunteers) Dave and Doug. Lunch at the cafe was delicious and enjoyed by all. Thank you!

VERY nice display of OPP memorabilia in the years past. I have recommended my friends to drop by when they are in town.
