Vancouver has a collection of unique attractions and museums, focusing on everything from anthropology and biodiversity, to shipyards and sports. Included on that list is the Vancouver Police Museum, which is located in the old city morgue. It features organizational history, crime-solving gear, artifacts, mystery stories, and even an autopsy room. This weekend you can check out their permanent collection and their latest exhibition at a free open house.

Bridging the Gap: Vancouver’s Youth and the Law is the latest exhibition at the Vancouver Police Museum. It explores how crime trends, changing legislation, and policing practices have come together to create a very Vancouver story. Students were invited to contribute in the form of an artwork that conveys the topic of ‘Youth and the Law’. They were asked to reflect on their interactions or connections with police and the law (positive or negative experiences) through artistic expression such as paintings, drawings and photographs.
