Pumphouse Steam Museum, Kingston Ontario
23 Ontario St, Kingston, ON K7L 2Y2
Spectacular Museum for family, adults, and interactive areas for kids. Enjoy a lot of history along Kingston’s waterfront on Lake Ontario, the architecture on the outside if a selling point enough to get you to do in and explore.
This museum boasts the main area with old Pumphouses and artifacts which are interactive for all, and art area, two kids areas (one is a train area and complete learning and interpretive area)
The Pump House Steam Museum cultivates and fosters an understanding and appreciation of the history and significance of Kingston’s first water pumping station, Kingston’s industrial past and more generally, the role of water as viewed through the lenses of science, culture and history. This is achieved through an active program that includes collection, preserving, exhibiting and educating the public through multidisciplinary methods, to convey the history and use of the historic site and the Pump House Steam Museum’s collection, as well as other topics and resources of general interest to the people of Kingston.
