    Watching the cadets in the parade square was a stunning sight. The trolley tour was wonderful for persons that have difficulty walking. The old mess hall now a chapel is a very interesting building.  more »

    Nice little museum with lots of historical info on the RCMP. The kids especially liked the driving simulator. Apparently the (low) admission goes towards a foundation.  more »

    This is an absolute must for anyone visiting the city of Regina. Here you will see a detailed history of the RCMP, putting the service into perspective. There are a variety of exhibits from items behind glass to large life-like items and vehicles in the open. There is also a theater where you can see a short documentary. There is plenty to see so plan at least an hour. Lots of parking and a gift shop on site.

    I visited the RCMP Heritage Centre by 11:30 a.m., and I was able to watch an introductory video called "Courage in Red." Then, I was offered to watch Sergeant Major's Parade at 12:45 p.m. I had to give them my ID and check my bag prior to watching the parade, so arrive early to have plenty of time. At 12:20 p.m. or so, the group was escorted to the parade grounds. The guides gave us a bit of history and life in the Depot. The parade was excellent. Then, we went to the chapel, being the second oldest building in the province. Finally, we were escorted back to the RCMP Heritage Centre. At the centre, I walked around the museum at my own pace. The displays provided a history of the RCMP, and then offered an interactive component. I spent almost half a day there. This is an excellent attraction for the entire family. Be sure to arrive early to catch any parades and tours that they may have in the secured areas.

Where to stay in Regina

For convenience, there's no better area to stay than the downtown, between the central station and Wascana Lake. If proximity to the station is important to you, stay north at one of the chain hotels along Saskatchewan Drive. If you'd rather be surrounded by greenery, look south to the more low-key accommodations along College Avenue, which backs onto the large park bordering the lake. Victoria Avenue offers a good selection of hotels in the center, as well as a large cluster of inns and motels as you head east toward the city limits.
