Looking for an authentic Halloween experience? Come and join Chris Mathieson, Executive Director of the Vancouver Police Museum, on Monday and Tuesday evenings in October for a unique ninety-minute storytelling experience inside the building that was Vancouver’s City Morgue for almost fifty years. Check out our experience at the morgue here. Naturally, Vancity Buzz has 4 tickets for one lucky winner to check out the morgue on us!
Built in 1932 as the home of the city’s Coroner’s Service and the Vancouver Police Bureau of Science, the building at 240 E. Cordova Street has thousands of stories to tell. From assassination attempts to practical jokes, from celebrity visits to music videos, these evening experiences will share the characters, exploits and chilling tales that make this one of Vancouver’s spookiest buildings.
“From the 1950’s to 1980, an average of 1,100 cases a year passed though these doors,” says Mathieson. “This building is connected to almost every accident, homicide and suicide that happened in this city during that period. Unlike some of the Halloween experiences out there, we don’t need to make anything up or leave things to the imagination—the truth is eerie enough.”
As these events happen after regular museum hours, doors open promptly at 6:30PM. Because of the (occasionally) graphic nature of the material presented, adults (18+) only please.
