Although in 1932 you’d find a Coroner’s Courtroom, morgue and autopsy facility here on Cordova Street (Errol Flynn was once picked apart on the top floor), nowadays it’s the much more child-friendly Vancouver Police Museum – although the place is still considered a heritage building.
Not only is it a great way in which to learn about the scientific methods and cultural role of policemen, but it’s also a unique look into the Vancouver police department specifically – through thousands (20,000+) of objects and photos depicting the evolution of their job and highlighting historical events. The museum also offers occasional forensic workshops in summertime for kids, such as fingerprinting and ballistics. Check up on the next forensic workshops for adults (like Blood Spatter and Coroner’s Court)… just be sure and leave the kids at home for those ones.
