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 that was built entirely from private donations.
The Museum is funded solely through guided tours, donations, sales from our gift shop and research requests.
Our facility offers a vibrant blend of the new and old, with interesting interactive displays dedicated to expanding the community's understanding of past and present policing in Toronto.
