If you are at all interested in Winnipeg History, especially law enforcement history, the Winnipeg Police Museum is a must see. Artifacts back to the 1800’s are on display. Originally divided into 13 smaller cities, each having its own police department, they amalgamated in 1974, into metro Winnipeg. Uniforms, equipment, firearms, vehicles and documents tell the history of the department.
