Vancouver Police Centennial Museum review Rate it

The most noteworthy items in the museum, which is housed in the old Coroner's Court building, are the autopsy pictures of Errol Flynn, who died in Vancouver in 1959 in the arms of his 19-year-old assistant. There is also a collection of unusual weapons confiscated over the years and records of dastardly crimes committed by nefarious citizens. Despite (or because of) its prurient nature, it's kid-friendly, and the Police Historical Society runs a number of tours and family programmes, such as 'Forensic Science for Kids' (check the website for current activities). The shop offers 'Cop coffee' and handcuff keychains. Not a large attraction, but guaranteed to fill a rainy afternoon.
