Welcome to the Marine Museum of the Great Lakes

The Marine Museum of the Great Lakes in Kingston has closed its museum galleries at 55 Ontario St. and has moved to 53 Yonge St., at Portsmouth Olympic Harbour. The museum ship Alexander Henry is no longer on display.  

Coming soon! The museum will soon open a new exhibit to the public at our new location at 53 Yonge St. The Admission will be free! Please check back for updates in early spring!

The Marine Museum was founded in 1975. Originally located at 55 Ontario St. at the first federal 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 building large enough to house the collections and galleries is found in Kingston. 

The Marine Museum currently maintains an office at Portsmouth Olympic Harbour, which is open during normal business hours, Monday - Friday. For more information call 613-542-2261.
