I recently graduated from Queen's and want to make sure that all see all the best museums before I leave Kingston!

My personal favourite is the Pumphouse Steam Museum. It's a small specialty museum, though, and your mileage may vary!


There are lots of other specialty museums,

a prison one run by the Pen www.penitentiarymuseum.ca/,

Sir John A's house (Bellevue House) www.pc.gc.ca/lhn-nhs/on/bellevue/index.aspx

a woodworking museum http://www.woodworkingmuseum.ca/

a martello tower is a museum


Fort Henry, of course, is a "living" museum


so much depends on what you enjoy....

Happy exploring!

We really enjoyed the Penitentiary Museum across from the Kingston Penitentiary. Some very interesting bits of contraband, clever devices and escape paraphernalia!
