  • We have a large number of museums in Kingston and I believe the Military Communications Museum is the largest. It recently went through a major enlargement in order to house the large trucks jammed full of communications equipment and big pieces of communications towers. Still there are all sorts of human size exhibits and displays from the original museum. Much use is made of mannequins wearing uniforms and communications equipment. The First World War is also widely represented in artifacts, photographs and artwork. This visit to the Museum was part of March break. The kids and grandkids were able to make take-aways such as Murney Towers and bracelets representing Morse code letters. They could also engage in activities where they could connect electronic and electrical items to make things happen.
  • Totally awesome museum! The people involved with this museum have done an amazing job of displaying equipment that dates back beyond the first world war. Those who live in or visit Kingston should not miss any opportunity to visit the Military Communications Museum.
  • A lot of fun. Did expect them to have vehicles. Took a bunch of older kids to check it out and they loved html. By donation - staff is very friendly.
  • What a gem! I was surprised how extensive the museum is and how detailed the exhibits are. Museum is free, donations appreciated. I learned quite a bit and the kids loved it. Give yourself at least 1-2 hours.
  • It was very nostalgic to see how much communication has changed since WW1. I really enjoyed the layout and the self guided tour. Very fun would go back when in kingston again.
