the place to visit for OPP history. it’s all there i was impressed with helicopter, camera and quick introduction to the role they play in search & rescue only on a quick tour. a full length one, i would think, would be most interesting

Just returned from a trip to the OPP Museum with a group of seniors. We had a wonderful tour with friendly and knowledgeable guides(volunteers) Dave and Doug. Lunch at the cafe was delicious and enjoyed by all. Thank you!

Worth your while but try to spend a bit of time exploring the many and varied displays. Much of the museum is self-directed; surprises and stories in a host of drawers, if you care to investigate.
