Very much enjoyed our visit here, especially the Seargent Major's inspection parade. Check out the painted fire hydrants!
We enjoyed the main feature movie about cadets as well as the various video presentations throughout the museum. The displays are well-organized. There is a nice gift shop on-site. One can attend the Sargent Major's parade at 12:45 each day on the nearby parade grounds at The Depot, which is within walking distance. No one told us we could also... More
We camped near Regina to see the graduation ceremony with the kids. It was nice to see the proud parents and family, but it should be a private affair. I don't understand why the guides tell you to go. For uninvolved observers, it is a little long and boring, even embarrassing, as you really don't have your place in your... More
Don't get me wrong. I'm a proud Canadian and have a ton of respect for the RCMP. We went on a Saturday during the off-season when there were no sunset ceremonies and no parades scheduled. Lots of historical content to view inside the beautiful building, but I can see it being difficult to access if there were crowds. There is... More
I thought it was just ok, a lot of reading displays, you couldn't get near enough to read or had to wait for the crowd to clear to get close. Thought it was expensive for a whole family to go. Probably wouldn't go again.
$12.00 is a more than reasonable cost. In my travels through out the world, I have been to crap Heritage Centres and Heritage Parks that charge as much as $35.00 per person. I think it is wonderful that they keep the entry cost low enough for those who are on a budget. I have been there more than 50 times,... More
The RCMP Heritage Center (sorry, I'm American and don't spell it "Centre") was a great and unexpected stop in Regina. To be honest I didn't know that much about the mounties apart from their trademark jackets and hats, so I found it fascinating to learn about the origin of the force and also what they do now. The museum has... More
The museum shows the history of the RCMP from their beginnings and is a wonderful place to spend a half-day to learn about this amazing institution. Our biggest disappointment was how misinformative the website was. Without knowing any better, we did not realize there was a difference between the Heritage Centre and the RCMP Training Depot (next door) as there... More
This is history and very impressive. It is the story of the RCMP created by an act of Canadian Parliament in 1873 to maintain law and order on the Canadian frontier and pave the way for settlement of the West. There is a guided walkabout tour explaining the cadet academy or "depot" as it is called. The Centre has a... More
