Sadly it would appear that plans are afoot to close this and build on the site. Anyway the entry fee was reduced to take account of the amount of packing going on.The Alexander Henry was well worth the visit. Go while you can. August looms.
Takes you back in time and to the present of shipping on the great lakes. Can use some updating on the lighting show casing some of the displays. You can go on a tour on your own on a ice breaker . Found this tour exciting.
We arrived fairly late in the day but an hour or two is more than enough time to visit yet still feel you have experienced the museum. There were a number of interesting displays in an area that was a lot larger than it appeared. It might not be interesting enough for very young children but children over 8 and... 更多
A very unique museum, very suitable for kids. The museum was a lot bigger than expected, it seems to never end. Everything was very informative. The ship is really fun and interesting to explore!
A neat little museum detailing the marine and maritime history of the Great Lakes, but unfortunately at our time of visiting this museum was in the process of relocating. I would recommend that for anyone that is able that they visit before this moves, as it will likely also mean the loss of their marquee ship in the dry dock.
Sadly closed but kids loved exploring outside, reading the plaques and seeing the big ship up close. Mississsuga point was the site of shipyards for 150 years. Kingston was an important port and the centre of ship building for the Great Lakes. The dry dock was build 1890. WWII navy vessels were built here!
A very informative experience that tells the story of the importance of ships on our Great Lakes and beyond. Unfortunately the Ice-Breaker was closed at the time of our visit, so a return trip in the better weather will be on our calendar.
