Vancouver Police Museum information
Lonely Planet review
Illuminating the crime-and-vice-addled history of the region, this quirky museum is lined with confiscated weapons and counterfeit currency. It also has a former mortuary room where the walls are studded with preserved slivers of human tissue – spot the bullet-damaged brain slices. Consider a summertime Sins of the City walking tour to learn all about the area's old brothels and opium dens.
If you're really enthused, the museum also runs Forensics for Adults workshops; check ahead for schedules. One of Vancouver's hidden gem museums, there are plenty of exhibits and grainy photos here covering a time when the city was rougher than a 1950s x-rated film noir movie.
