Doors Open Kingston 2020 - Marine Museum of the Great Lakes - Dry Dock

Saturday, September 26, 2020 - 10:00am to 2:00pm




Social Bubble Maximum: 10

Limited behind-the-scenes tours of the Marine Museum's historic property at 55 Ontario Street, 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 wares, and contributed to Kingston's shipbuilding industry for well over 60 years.  While still located at their storefront gallery at Portsmouth Olympic Harbour, the Museum provides an opportunity for the public to explore the property's historical features and the Museum's vision for the future with their stairs. This 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.

Our Doors Open Tours are set up to only include members of your social bubble, to a maximum of 10 individuals per tour time slot. Whether your bubble today has two or ten, only your bubble will be at this time slot. Please remember to bring an appropriate face mask or covering as recommended by the Kingston Public Health Unit. A small supply of masks will be available for each tour and hand sanitizer for your use.

Tours are scheduled at 10 am and 2 pm for an hour (allowing time for full cleaning and sanitizing between tours).  Please click below to register for a tour:
