10 Best Family Destinations for Learning Experiences

Royal Canadian Mounted Police Heritage Center, Saskatchewan
For more than a century, the Royal Canadian Mounted Police have kept crime to a minimum across Canada. In Regina, their primary training center explores the role of the red-clad Mounties. Housed in an elegantly designed stone and glass building on the grounds of the RCMP Academy (where most Mounties and their horses train), the center uses art exhibits, multimedia presentations, and special programming and tours to tell the story of the RCMP. Depending on when you visit, you may also be able to catch the RCMP Musical Ride, the show put on by the Mounties' traveling equestrian troupe that showcases the officers' intricate cavalry drills.
