Attractions & things to do for the kids in your life

Toronto Police Museum (Toronto)

Family Tested

Good guys, bad guys

The architecture of the Police Headquarters is imposing. At the entrance, officers in uniform impressed my little citizen, but not as much as the gleaming police edition Harley-Davidson posted nearby. He happily (and legally) hopped on the motorcycle. While your child inspects the genuine police car, read the captions inside the display cases containing exhibits from true criminal cases. Afterwards, initiate your miniature CSI investigator to the Forensic Evidence Area. You can show them several pieces of evidence, the catchiest one being nails stuck in garden hoses to slow down the police during a chase! In the replica station, there's a prison cell (unfortunately closed when we visited). Further on, my son saw his first real car wreck near a sign comparing the number of automobile accident deaths from the current and previous year. These statistics are updated weekly!
