The Marine Museum has CLOSED at the previous location at 55 Ontario St.

Welcome to the Marine Museum of the Great Lakes

The Marine Museum of the Great Lakes in Kingston was founded in 1975. Originally located at 55 Ontario St. at the only federally built dry dock on the Great Lakes, the Marine Museum recently closed its doors at the site when the property was sold to a new owner, ending the previous lease arrangement. The collections have been placed into storage until a new museum site is found in Kingston. 

The Marine Museum currently maintains an office at Portsmouth Olympic Harbour at 53 Yonge St., Unit 4, Kingston Ontario K7M 6G4. The museum will soon initiate a community outreach programming and conduct normal museum business during normal business hours, Monday through Friday. For more information call 613-542-2261.
