Owner description: The Royal Canadian Mounted Police (RCMP) have been an integral part of Canada's historical and cultural landscape since 1873, helping to form and protect our great nation, and playing a significant role in creating the Canadian identity. Situated on the doorstep of RCMP Academy, "Depot" Division in Regina, Saskatchewan, where Mounties have trained since 1885, the RCMP Heritage Centre is appropriately located where the tradition begins. The Centre brings to life the incredible story of the RCMP and its role in the development of Canada using state of the art exhibits, multimedia technologies, and engaging programming and tours.
Useful Information: Wheelchair access, Bathroom facilities

Spent a whole morning with our family visiting the Depot and museum. The tour was a little bland, merely pointing out buildings which were/are barracks mostly. The museum and movie were more interesting, giving you a feeling for who the RCMP are and how they become police officers. We went on a Thursday which I would not recommend, better to go on a Monday/Wednesday or Friday when you can see the cadets marching in the afternoon.

Pros: Provides an interesting history of the Mounted Police. Many interesting tidbits I would never have known if not for going.

Cons: Exhibits were hard to follow in order. We ended up reading many signs out of order or even backwards. The signs expected visitors to remember names through the whole museum.

We spent the afternoon here with our teenage son. He was engaged in both the museum and the tour. The museum is quite well done; the tour provides good information and ended with the daily parade. The church is beautiful -- make sure you go in.

Our tour guide tried hard, though she was too quiet and rushed at times. It was still really worth the time to go on the tour.

I like the history of the RCMP and the displays. You can take as much or as little time as you wish.
