The Museum is now open with our first exhibit: Kingston Believe It or Not. You probably already know that Kingston was once the first Capital of Canada, Canada’s first Prime Minister Sir John A. MacDonald lived here, it’s known as “The Limestone City” and home to prisons, universities and a military base.

Believe it or Not…Kingston has many more stories to tell. This exhibition takes you on a tour of some of the lesser known segments of this city’s history. In honour of Canada’s 150th anniversary of Confederation, we invite you to experience the mystery of Kingston’s history, delving into the strange, unusual and intriguing.

You be the judge! Come find out if you, Believe it or Not!
