Museum & Discovery Centre will be undergoing HVAC and electrical updates until the middle of July. Please be aware of scaffolding and do not touch any tools or construction materials.

The Museum is still OPEN to the public from 8:30am – 4pm. Thank you for your understanding.

The Toronto Police Museum & Discovery Centre seeks to collect, preserve, interpret, and showcase objects and documents of historic significance to the Toronto Police Service in order to cultivate relationships with communities across Toronto, and the Greater Toronto area, in the spirit of respect, understanding, and trust.

Plan Your Visit

The Museum & Discovery Centre is located on the 1st floor of the Toronto Police Service Headquarters, on College St.

The nearest subway station is College Station on the corner of College St. and Yonge St.

Please note that for the safety of our employees and other visitors, all persons entering the Toronto Police Service Headquarters must go through a security screening. You are not required to submit to the security screening but, refusal to do so will result in a denial of entry to the premises. We thank you for your cooperation and understanding.

Research Requests

The Museum & Discovery Centre Archives are currently undergoing new cataloguing and digitization of its materials. While this effort promises to enhance accessibility and preservation, it also means that all research requests are put on hold until further notice. We appreciate your patience during this process as we work to make our archives more accessible to all.
