Would you survive the zombie apocalypse?

While it’s a question you might not think about every day, you’d certainly want to be prepared for a “Dawn of the Dead” doomsday scenario.

Luckily, the Vancouver Police Museum is offering a crash course this month to help you select the ideal weapon to fight the impending horror.

Weapon of Choice: Surviving the Zombie Apocalypse takes place throughout the month of October and allows guests to test their zombie survival skills as they venture through the museum.

The museum has a massive weapons collection, and you’ll be able to select one to defend yourself against the zombies (choose wisely). You’ll be able to search through the available guns, bats and blow darts and make your choice, but not all weapons are created equal – some of these won’t guarantee survival.

In addition to choosing a weapon, you’ll also learn about the history of zombies. Visitors will hear about the origins of zombie folklore, as well as where the word “zombie” comes from.

As North America’s oldest police museum, visitors will view over 20,000 rare artefacts, photos and archival documents, in addition to unique crime related items like confiscated weapons and counterfeit currency.

Sadly, all of the Movies in the Morgue shows are sold out for this October. In fact, all of the showtimes are full until April next year, but there is a waitlist option for each date. However, you can catch Jim Carrey in The Cable Guy on April 20, 2020. After that, movies will start again in the fall.
