Worth your while but try to spend a bit of time exploring the many and varied displays. Much of the museum is self-directed; surprises and stories in a host of drawers, if you care to investigate.

you have to check in with the front desk then you can walk into the museum and see all the displays. There is a paper guide that you take with you and it explains what you are looking at. Very good for kids as well....More

It was interesting seeing the history of the OPP and how their uniform has changed. My niece is considering a career in the police and was ably to ask questions. It's not a large display but it is free

We have always enjoyed visiting the museum. This was our 2nd visit. We had friends from Las Vegas here visiting and we drove down to Orillia and Did a Boat cruise and then visited the museum. Informing each visit. Quite the history.
