  • Small museum, good view of the old city water pumps. Huge model train setup. For the Canadians of a certain age, the model train set that appeared on the opening of "The Friendly Giant" is on display. You can run many of the trains. The old steam launch outside is a nice treat as well.
  • I visited almost the first day it opened. There were more info on how pumping works. But those science info was probably too difficult and now it was replaced with science camp and other exhibits. But this museum is still full of fun for family with kids to spend couple hours. Don't forget about the fun train models!
  • It was a very cool experience. The staff there were amazing and knowledgeable. Gave us a brochure and information about other museums and events in Kingston. Was a great experiance.
  • Our 4 years old loves this place. Excellent choice of educational toys and games and a train table and model railway.
  • Entry fees are reasonnable. Kids can play and touch things while learning!
