Our museum tours delve into the lawless origins of Vancouver as a city and explore fascinating elements of policing, crime and justice throughout the decades.

This wild ride takes you through the history of Vancouver’s street safety, from carriages, cars and prohibition to motorcycles, riots and beyond!

You’ll also discover our famous True Crimes exhibit, which highlights the city’s most notorious crimes and cold cases with authentic evidence and artefacts on display.
