About the Museum and Discovery Centre

The Toronto Police Museum & Discovery Centre is a not-for-profit registered Charity, operating in close partnership with, but separate from the Toronto Police Service.  The Toronto Police Museum & Discovery Centre was built entirely from private donations.

The Museum is solely funded through guided tours, sales from our Gift-Shop, and research requests.

Whether you have only a few minutes or an hour or two, enjoy a delightful visit to the Toronto Police Museum and Discovery Centre. Occupying 3,000 square feet in the atrium at Police Headquarters building, the Museum reflects the rich tradition and history of policing in our great city.

Built entirely from private donations, our facility offers a vibrant blend of the new and old, with interesting interactive displays dedicated to expanding the community's understanding of policing in Toronto.

Anyone planning to visit the museum are required to e-mail us to book their tour.

For information or tour bookings, please call 416-808-7020 or e-mail us.
