    This was quite an interesting museum, dedicated about medicine and illnesses. What I liked the most is that they explained many diseases such as smallpox, strangling angel of children, the crippler, w...  more »

    Great museum in both the quality of their collection and unique content. Located in the heart of the medical campus it is a little tricky to find but well worth the effort. Definitely take the free guided tour. The volunteers are extremely knowledgeable both in the medical artifacts and the overall history of the town. Interesting exhibit about health initiative effects on pandemic diseases at the end.

    Wonderfully curated history of healthcare with an emphasis on local history. Great exhibits, and friendly staff. Also have other programming such as a baby/toddler program over the summer.

    Very informative. All the exhibits are presented in a neat, clean and logical fashion. For the location which is rather small, they have a decent sized collection. By far the best part was the excellent service on the part of the staff. We were in a tour group and we were treated exceptionally well. A good place to take kids on breaks and for school trips - also a "must-see" for adults interested in the healthcare field (professionally or otherwise).

Where to stay in Kingston

The most desirable accommodations in Kingston line the waterfront in the city's downtown region, offering views over the wide St. Lawrence River. If you want to immerse yourself in the city's hippest scene, look slightly west to the area around Queen's University, where you'll also enjoy easy access to some of Kingston's most pleasant parks. Those hoping to take some road trips out of the city should consider staying at one of the many motels and guesthouses along Princess Street--there, you're perfectly placed to hit the road and explore the region.
