Come and enjoy limited behind-the-scenes tours of the Marine Museum, including both exterior and interior features. Built in 1890, the Dry Dock and Engine House (designed by Chief Engineer Henry Perley) was later added to during the world wars, and contributed to Kingston's shipbuilding industry for over 60 years. The museum provides an opportunity for the public to explore the property's historical features and its vision for the future. Doors Open is an opportunity to see and learn first-hand the importance of this property to Kingston's heritage and how the museum intends to preserve it for future generations. Book your tour here!
