“Interesting Museum in Orillia”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 6 January 2012

I have been there twice , each time with a grandchild. It is quite a decent size, and has several police cars that are very old, lots of pictures, and uniforms and well worth a visit. It also has a gift shop.
Last visit was in August 2011

“100+ years of Policing the Province”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 3 December 2011

A part of the Ontario Provincial Police Headquarters building, this quiet, low profile museum, provides an interesting look at the history of the province's police force, development through its 100+ years, and insight into modern day policing.

The exhibits do a good job of communicating to visitors, the various specialty careers available in law enforcement, and in policing as a profession.

There is also a “dress-up” area for the younger ones. Be sure to take your camera.
