We had a great time. The kids loved it. They had a blast trying the uniforms on. As well as the guided tour learning about the differences of the old vehicles to the new ones. Our oldest enjoyed the forensics table and of course, the Lego area. Would recommend this tour to people in the area.

We visited the OPP museum over the March break with a 9 and 7 year old and a 22 month old. There was something for everyone to do (it was even interesting for me) and we were here for close to 2 hours. If our little guy didn't have to leave for a nap we could have stayed for quite... More

I took our grandson here and we both enjoyed opening all the drawers to discover things about the OPP. This room is tastetfully, and concisely assembled to explore on your own the History of our OPP. There is a little shop that sells OPP souvenirs but the little "gift" donated by a local dentist made our grandson's day!

Went with my 4 and 6 year old today on a PA day and there were several different attractions specifically for kids - games, legos, puzzles, colouring, hands-on detective work like magnifying glasses, and uniform dress up. Add in viewing the vintage vehicles, an OPP cartoon from the video selections, and the visit held their attention for a good hour... More

What a great way to spend time with the family. No admission fee makes this an affordable destination. Museum has many great artifacts and curios The gift shop is full of tee shirt , hats , etc. Old cars in lobby are great to have your photo taken beside. Lunch through the week can be had in cafeteria.

On a recent visit to Orillia my husband and I decided to visit the OPP museum. I had a personal reason to visit the museum. The museum is small, however, jam packed with information and displays and activity centres, as well as videos. It was incredibly well put together and organized. We had the pleasure of meeting a volunteer with... More
