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.

First, we were invited to see a 22 minute movie on the RCPM training academy. A very well done movie explaining the 6 month of training. Then we visited different kiosques representing the different period of this organization. Interesting to say the least and to be recommended if you visit Regina.

I have previously visited the RCMP Hertiage Museum in 2013 and this place never gets old. I love the history of the RCMP and all the knowledge that is there. This time we also went to see the sergeant's parade where role call is done for a select number of troops. Also what was new for me was the virtual... More

Went here and made it in time for the drill parade. Great spectacle. The Hertiage Centre itself is a really good experience and very interesting with lots of exhibits and hands on activities. Would be great for kids also. Staff were excellent and knowledgeable. Definitely worth a visit.

Find out more about the RCMP and how they are trained and what they do all over Canada. It is a very interesting museum and be sure and watch the 20 minute film about the training of the Mounties right here in Regina. Very impressive.

A last minute decision to visit here and was pleasantly surprised to discover such important history central to Canada's society and how the traditions live on. The cadets put on a marching parade soon after I arrived (around midday) which a bonus to see at no additional cost.
