City of Waterloo Museum, 550 King St N, Waterloo
If you haven’t checked out this fascinating exhibit yet at the City of Waterloo museum, head on over and get a good at the thugs and rogues of years gone by, specifically 1886-1908. But it’s not just looking at bad guys (or gals); the museum is presenting an exhibit that “highlights historical themes and social circumstances that provide a backdrop to the stories of the individuals featured,” according to their website. There's also the opportunity to look at the way policing was done at the time.
